I always have Clairvoyance ready when I'm traveling across the map. But it seems that if I have magic ready, the other characters in the game remark that I need to be careful, I need to take my magic elsewhere, etc.

Does having magic or a weapon at the ready cause the other characters to he less hospitable towards me?

They don't actually become hostile unless you hit them with an adversarial spell. It's just in-game immersion dialogue.

If you use a shout (such as Dragonrend on a dragon in Riften) at nighttime, sometimes a guard will ask you to quiet it down. I've never chosen the "Don't worry, there's more where that came from." option, so I don't know if answering negatively will hurt your standing or will force the guard to arrest you.

The negative option doesn't affect anything either. The guard just sends you on your way after commenting on your bad attitude. –  Brant Jan 15 '12 at 4:49

Also doesn't matter if it's daytime or nighttime AFAIK. –  Annan Jan 15 '12 at 6:24
    
But what effect does having a weapons out have on prices, ability to persuade, etc? –  Canageek Jan 15 '12 at 6:32

Thers no effect but guard may say things like "Woah woah watch the magic or "A guard might get nervas,a man approaches with his weapon drawn" either way they don't do anything aside from tell you off the occasional shout
