         More Information VRP: I want you to be polite and give her a chance. 
VRP: I want you to be polite and give her a chance. Green: I would like you to ask her questions on her presentation after she gives her conclusions.
To tell someone to "be polite" can be taken as a Persecutor statement meaning, "You've been rude to her before," or "You should not be rude to her". "Give her a chance" is fuzzy in its Want, and thereby can infer "rudeness" on the part of the hearer. Green statements of Wants suggest specific, do-able actions that are being requested. They are free of inferring "shoulds" and "should-nots".
