Want To Get People To Do What You Want? Ask Them For Something Absolutely Ridiculous First

A new study figured out a psychological trick you can use to get people to do what you want.  Instead of asking for it right away, start by making an OUTRAGEOUS request.  Like, "Can I borrow $10,000?"

 The researchers found that if you follow that up by making your real request . . . like, "Fine, can I borrow $20?" . . . the person is MUCH more likely to do it, because they're off balance and their perspective is still skewed.
