I saw this on a 40 year old episode of Columbo and tried it at the office. It still works great.

Effect: Ask a person to pick a number from 1 to 10. She says, for example 7. You tell her to pick up the stapler on your desk and look at the bottom. It reads "I knew you would pick the number 7." Works 100% of the time, but it works best if you do it for one person alone in your cubicle. It's also a great way to get that new temp to go out to lunch with you...and if you word it just right maybe she'll even end up buying.

Secret: Pick out 10 objects around your desk. Type up a slip of paper for each one, the first one says "I knew you would pick number 1." the next one says the same thing but with number 2...etc. Affix #1 to the bottom of the stapler. Affix #2 to the bottom of the phone. Affix #3 to the back of your wife's photo. You get the idea...and if it bothers you to ask the temp out even though you're married, buy a disposable cell phone to keep your girlfriends straight...we're all doing it, including your wife and her boyfriend(s).

If you can't remember 10 items, use 5.

The Great Santini episode!! That was the first episode of Columbo I ever saw and I became hooked from that point on.
