Every tactic we teach is:
1) Backed by empirical, psychological research
and more importantly
2) Tested and used by us personally
and perhaps even MORE importantly than that
3) Used successfully by over one thousand of our students around the world.
Physical contact increases compliance. Ex: 60 women were asked to dance, 65% of women complied vs. 43% of women who weren’t touched on the arm. Women rated the men who touched them on the arm as more dominant and attractive. (Journal of Social Influence, 2007)
A second study involved three male research assistants approaching 240 women in the street and asking them for their phone numbers. Among those 120 women who the researchers touched lightly on the arm, 19 per cent agreed to share their number, compared with 10 per cent of the women with whom no physical contact was made.http://bps-research-digest.blogspot.com ... n-arm.html
