How to be a Favourite – #5: Be an attractive member of the opposite sex
You knew it was coming eventually.
5. Be an attractive member of the opposite sex
Or the same sex, if your IT technician is that way inclined.
This isn’t something we’re necessarily proud of, but there is no sense in denying it: studies such as that released by the Royal Society a couple of years ago confirm the common wisdom that men in particular are easily swayed by a pretty face. Most women would claim the fairer sex is immune to this, but my own experience shows otherwise, though certainly to a lesser extent.
Of course, you will have very little control over whether you can use this to your advantage with your own IT technician, as it will depend entirely on their preferences and marital status, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t acknowledge that it is a factor. I’ll put my hands up right now and admit that despite being very happily married, and despite this not being high on my list of reasons someone will get into my good books – it helps.
