Who would you rather buy from?

July 14, 2009

You’re entasked to buy a complicated and expensive product for your company.

You invite a bunch of vendors to come and pitch for the job. Every vendor seems to meet your requirements.

If you are male and can only pick one below, who would you rather buy from?

a. The salesman who is aggressive and seems to be an expert in his field.

b. The salesman who knows nothing about his field but offers you the lowest price.

c. The saleswoman who knows nothing about the product but man, she’s hot.

This is a real question asked by HR of a company as they were trying to define the profile of an ideal salesperson. 🙂

And while we’re on the subject, does anyone know why airlines take a lot of trouble hiring hot female flight atendants when half their passengers are women?

    hmmm..

    i would buy from b , learn and leech from a , and bang c after the meeting .

    how’s my answer 🙂

    Hey you’re supposed to choose only one. :mrgreen: Actually they ended up hiring a pretty salewoman to compensate for the male salesmen so if they find it hard to win the client, they send the woman.

    eh , i choose one (which is b)

    hmm ..pretty saleswoman works , ugly salesman works , but handsome and hot salesman doesn’t work ..

    you know why? 🙂

    Yea you did choose (b). Good choice. No, I don’t know why a h&h salesman doesn’t work. Why?

    i will go for B also. A is too aggressive and I hate being pushed around. =_=
    C …er…ahem…depends on how hot. 😛

    but yeah, donno why most of the time if the salesman failed, they will send the saleslady and she’ll win the deal.

    Yeah, shows you which head was doing the thinking, lol. You know something funny. In Asia & Europe you see mainly girls in beer ads like Carlsberg but in America its usually men, like in Budweiser beer ads. 🙂
