11 am: Looking for help – the right ear is more receptive
If you want your colleague to help you with a annoying task, you better tell him speaking into his right ear. Asking for help in that way will increase your chances being heard, Italien researchers found.
in a field test, researcher of the University of Chieti went to a night club and asked 176 guests for a cigarette. Sometimes the approached people from the right and sometimes from the left. The results showed that the ones that were approached from the right were more willing to give away a cigarette. The reason is the fact that the right ear influences the left brain more intensely and spoken word is processed better.
