It Is Your Choice...!

Now this is something I didn't know, but I figured I should share it with you.

You might find this handy when trying to convince someone to do something they don't want to do...who knows?

When you want someone to agree to your request, using the phrase ‘but you are free to refuse’ can double your chances. While studies show it works equally well no matter the type of request, how or why it works remains unclear – but there are theories that it puts people at ease, because it shows respect and makes them feel like their freedom to say no isn’t being violated.

Interesting how the human mind works, isn't it?

Coffee out on the patio this morning...but feel free to refuse if you wish.

A little respect and consideration can go a long way it seems, and of course I'll see e eryone on the patio:))

That is very interesting. As the old saying goes "you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar". Respect always goes a long way. I'll have to try this one my hubby and see if it works. :)

I'll have to try it some time. Does sound a bit passive/aggressive, though.

Hey Momlady...
You really think so? Guess it could be taken that way.

Hey Rob...
It does seem to be a drastic favorable increase in the odds, doesn't it?
Thanks for stopping by this morning!
