Have you ever wondered why are there mirrors in the elevators? There are three reasons related to both safety and psychology.
Firstly, people usually get bored while being in an elevator. Mirrors abstract people’s attention so they do not complain about the time they spend in it.
Moreover, many people suffer from claustrophobia, which means fear of being in small or closed spaces from which they feel they cannot escape. Mirrors make them feel that they are in a broader space.
Finally, mirrors help people see their image while getting into it, so accidents are avoided.
