Most people are more likely to comply with a favor request if the requester whispers it. According to a study, people who ask for favors from a stranger are more likely to receive it if they are wearing red. A little bit of humility can go a long way when asking for a favor - studies have found that people are more likely to comply with a request if the requester admits they don't know the answer to a related question.
