The salesman's wife thought about this for awhile. She then told the salesman that women use twice as many words as men because each time they talk to men they have to repeat everything they say.
The salesman looked stunned and automatically replied, "What?"
Moral of the story. True sales professionals know that communication is key to their success. For more precise communication a good vocabulary is essential. For informed communication reading and an extensive knowledge of current events can't be beat. For efficient and effective communication great listening skills are absolutely essential. Say what?
"The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place."
- George Bernard Shaw
