How Sales Techniques Work

True Story: When Alessandra and I got engaged we registered for all sorts of free wedding prizes at some wedding show. We were offered airfare to Hawaii in exchange for sitting through a sales session. We went in united in strength not to fall for any sales pitched and we walked out with 2 new (skull crushing)super pans, $425 poorer.

Why? Because sales is a science that has been designed to bypass our rational brains and go right to the emotional center.

If you hate sales people as much as I do (not counting retail associates who don't really count unless it's high end), and want to know how it's done, you should read this article.

I hate sales. But if you're good at it, like my sister in law, it's great fucking cash.
