Does asking for a break make it more likely you'll get one?

My strategy has always been be respectful, don't play dumb (though I try not to provide any specifics in case they're fishing), and make the officer feel as safe as possible (windows down, interior lights one, hands on wheel, engine off, pull over in an area where they're not in danger from traffic, tell them when and where I'm going to reach to get my paperwork).

The above has worked pretty well for me. But, I've never actually asked for a break-- do you think doing so would make me more likely to get one?
