People involved in marketing and sales should know this technique very well. It is quite often used during personal negotiations and sales over the phone. When you want somebody to agree with your suggestion you need to ask at least 3 questions. And you should be 100% confident you will receive positive answers. It is mentally much easier for a person to agree to your offer when he/she said “yes” 3 times before.

For example, if you know that she likes opera and classical music you can ask 3 consecutive questions, like “Hey, I think you mentioned before you like classical music, right?”. “And you also said you like our local opera?”. “Do you like Beethoven?”. When she answers 3 times “yes” go ahead and offer her a date.
