"You’ve probably experienced an elevation in your mood when in the presence of someone upbeat, or starting to feel more negative when around someone angry. There’s good science that explains this phenomenon, along with a few other ways that you’re subconsciously influenced by those around you.

There are important implications here for negotiating and reducing conflict, and I highly recommend this article."

See this post from Tammy Lenski, from which the foregoing was reprinted, for a link to the Kathy Sierra article.
