People feel rapport with you when they believe you have mutual values and shared priorities. However, your communication style can get in the way and stop you from building rapport effectively.
You will normally find it easier to communicate with people who have the same personality traits as you. It can be harder to converse when each person has different dominant traits.
Recognizing your psychological opposite
Everyone has encountered people whose personas are the opposite of their own.
It is likely that you will be able to remember a time or in fact several times, when you have encountered people who appeared absolutely alien in their modes of thinking and in the way they get things done. These people probably had a very different personality.
No matter who you are, there are many positives and negatives which can be drawn from being with your psychological opposite. One main strength of being with someone so unlike yourself is that you complement each other's weaknesses. Your strengths will be very useful in helping your opposite deal with areas where they have "blind spots" and vice versa. As long as your communication remains good and you ensure nothing is misinterpreted you can have a very effective relationship as there will be very few problems that at least one of you cannot handle.
Howver, it is also possible that you can encounter difficulties when working with your opposite. You may start to see them as the answer to all of your problems and place too great a weight of expectation upon them. Try to develop your weaker qualities yourself. You should also try to aid your psychological opposite's growth in dealing with their own "blind spots". Another problem which often occurs is a breakdown in communication; because you think in very dissimilar ways, it is easy for ideas to get lost in translation.
One way you and your psychological opposite could work welll together is that one of you may often get stuck for ideas but your opposite seems to spout them out for fun. Working together you can learn to access your creative side. On the other hand, you and your opposite could encounter problems because one of you is very objective and rational, but the other is more in touch with their emotions. You might have very different personal values.

Seeing Yourself in Others
Recognizing your mirrored self (somebody similar to you) - sometimes your biggest blind spot is in the mirror...
You may find that you instinctively recognize when you are with people who possess the opposite qualities to your own. Because they are so dissimilar to you they are easier to recognize as you find inconsistencies in the way you tend to act together. However, it may be more difficult for you to recognize when you are having trouble with someone who is very similar to you.
Once again, there are pros and cons to this relationship. When you are with someone who acts in a manner similar to your own it can be very successful. Your strengths mesh and you have an intuitive understanding of how you both think things through. You can resolve issues before they arise by accommodating your partner's preferences prior to them being voiced and vice versa.
One example of how you might find being together very easy is that you can both read one another's emotional states well, while being able to tell when the other's feeling are getting in the way of their objectivity. Then again, here is an example of how you and your mirrored self might have trouble being together. You may be both very casual and informal and this can lead to a perceived lack of professionalism.
