If we have been persuaded (with sweet talk rather than pressure) to do something, we would say:
‘I wasn’t sure I wanted to join the project, but Ted cajoled me into it!’
To ‘carol’ means to sing Christmas carols. To ‘cage’ is to put someone or something in a cage or in prison. To ‘caress’ means to stroke gently or lovingly. If we talk someone into doing something, we ‘cajole’ them!
Don’t even try to cajole me; my mind’s made up!
