I see you thinking about reaching for your gun, a P38 judging by the way it has changed the hang of your jacket. Let me just stop you right there and point out that even if you did manage to get the gun out, pointed at me, and unload every round in the extended mag you think I didn't notice before my buddy on the hill up there with the sniper rifle puts a hole through your left eye, it wouldn't matter because you carry yourself like a cop trained to shoot center mass and I'm wearing kelvar. So why don't you just put your hands up real nice and slow-like and let's have this conversation like civilized people.

Yeah, okay that works. Accept, I'm not down with the character making the 'same' skill roll twice and getting bonuses from himself.

If another character made the first roll as an Aid Another/Team Player thing... yeah, that I'm okay with. Unless I'm running a solo game, then I'd consider letting one person give themselves bonuses.

Also, that's clearly a 'Cut Out', so... not sure how I missed that.

That's exactly how it's supposed to be used. The bonus works just like the standard one from approachability: You pause to look over the crowd or the small group, taking a base time of 10 minutes. Then you roll to spot a suitable target. If you succeed, you get a more favorable reaction than if you picked someone at random. Or, if you choose to use an Influence skill, you get a bonus to the skill, but that's secondary to the reaction bonus.
