I admit it. I absolutely hate being sold to. As soon as someone goes into their sales pitch, my guard goes up, my cynicism kicks in, and I’m convinced someone thinks they can pull something over on me.
I was once upon a time in a business where I possessed intellectual capital and I was supposed to sell that to others. I hated that. Either they needed it–or they didn’t. I was convinced that if they needed it, they knew it, and they would seek it out……otherwise, I was an annoyance and pushing myself inappropriately to those who didn’t have a need.
Yes I admit it…I hate salespeople in my face.
Anyone else hate being marketed to as much as I hate it?
