The sum of the magnetic dipole moments for pairs of mirror nuclei, as calculated with intermediate-coupling functions in the shell, is found to be very insensitive to the degree of spin-orbit coupling. This property can be understood as being due to the rotational nature of the wave functions, and can also be interpreted in terms of wave functions from the Nilsson model. Magnetic dipole moments are predicted for those nuclei which have not been measured.
