6. The Principle of Likeability

People tend to say yes if they know and like the person asking the question.

Example: Commercials frequently use likable celebrities as spokespeople.

On the Interview: Find something about the interviewer that you truly like and respect. The interviewer will sense this and be naturally led to like and respect you in return. This is not manipulative, because it builds upon a real emotion, not a fabricated one.
