Talk to any high performing sales representative for any product/industry and youll see a aggressive yet subtle tactics being displayed. People think they have bought something willingly when in fact they have been sold.


Diplomacy is very much like sales. You cant go around saying "i got the biggest hammer" bc that tactic will only last so long and any deal under said tactic will be flimsy at best.

What? You know "sales" and that type of aggression was not what we were talking about, so nice try. Again, give me an example of a world leader who shows/showed aggression while simultaneously displaying finesse, refinement and subtlety. You know exactly what I'm asking, so stop dancing around the question and answer it........or admit that you spoke out of your ass (...and we all know that it's the latter).


P.S. High performing, aggressive salesmen ARE NOT subtle. They are typically overt and often overwhelming, sometimes charming, and will generally not take "No!" for an answer.

Depends who's doing the sales. Rolls Royce can. DeBeers can. Rolex can. The thing about sales is different tactics need to be used, depending on who's selling, WHAT they are selling, and to whom the product is being sold to. Lucky for us, no one bought the crap Hillary Clinton was selling.

Ill play your game Trebek, Reagan (fired air traffic controllers without breaking a sweat), Golda Meir, and Maggie. Bibi is close, although a bit too timid. However, liberalism unfortunately prohibits simultaneous use of aggression and finesse.

And you have yet to contribute a sensible one.

Sorry, it was too inviting.
