Green tea, the strong persuader

A study shows that people are more open to suggestions (such as "Can I have a raise?") after they've consumed caffeine.

It could be that caffeine simply puts a person in a good mood, and when someone is in a good mood, they’re usually more amenable to doing the right thing.

If that’s the case, then green tea should do an even better job—it contains theanine, which has been shown to make people mellow.
