I don’t trust people who won’t take “no” for an answer.  I’m not sure why this is, really.  It can be something so silly–like being offered a piece of cake.  The more times I have to say “no, thank you” to a person in a given situation then the less I trust the individual.  I do not like being “talked into” something I have originally said “no” to.  To me, if someone will not accept my “no thank you” to something small and meaningless then they are not going to accept my “no” on something very big or important.  Also, if I say “no” to a piece of cake then why do you care?  Ultimately, if me accepting a piece of cake is so important to you that you will practically harass me into accepting it then that piece of cake represents something that is about you and not me.  Of course I am over thinking this whole thing but it doesn’t matter.  My comfort level is important to me and I become extremely uncomfortable when pressured to do something I don’t want to do.  I simply don’t like it and I do not like being around people who put me in that position.  Culturally speaking, there are people who need to be told “no” a couple of times to ensure the first “no” is not out of politeness.  This concept I get.  I do understand something being offered something a couple of times before a “no” is accepted.  But past the third “no thank you” I being to feel harassed.  That’s just me.
