someone angry at you? talk to their right ear

If you get someone angry at you and would like them to forgive you, be sure to direct your apology to their right ear.

Researchers at the University of Valencia recently examined 30 young men who were caused to become angry. Their study showed that a person's right ear becomes more susceptible to sound when we are angry. It can also hear sounds more clearly. However, there is no difference in the left ear.

The scientists believe that this phenomenon is the result of the fact that the left side of the brain processes what comes in the right ear.

Previous research reported in Science Daily also suggests that if you want to persuade someone to do something for you that it is best to address their right ear. [www_telegraph_co_uk]

I am guessing that flowers, money, sincerity, humility and/or groveling are still better tools for reducing another person's anger.
