This all depends on whether you are a man or a woman. The conflict resolution strategies causes them to react in different ways.

Women during a experiment improved in stressful meetings using caffeine. This was because they tended to have a conflict resolution style that is more collaborative.

Men in the experiment tended to do worse after using caffeine. This was because their fight or flight response was active. Caffeine enhanced this and made it harder to think.

In short, if you are a woman then drink coffee before your meeting. If you are a man, don’t.

Clips, where dancers raise legs up to 90 degrees, generates more emotions among watchers. The same like rounded dance movements, rather than edgy ones, made watchers happier. In simple words, dance has a deep connection with our feelings and sensation.

Older people trust cheaters more often than young people by a fair margin.

Why this is, is still speculated. In questions after it seems the older people were not worried about losing the money. They seemed to think it was more important to be good to the other person and give them a chance.
