Mr. Nice Guy

"It's your decision," he said, and smiled to show how friendly he could be. Most of the time he was Mr. Nice Guy. He opened doors for you, stood back to let you into the lift, laughed at your jokes, agreed with your conclusions, and asked your advice. But when all the pleasantries were over he made sure you did exactly what he wanted.
