    They obviously can, since they do. Even if their primary purpose is social, though, if they rely primarily on emotion to make their purchasing choice, they may end up very dissatisfied.

    Making money is the purpose of a marketing strategy, not necessarily providing a quality product or service to earn that money.
    Hope is the denial of reality. It is the carrot dangled before the draft horse to keep him plodding along in a vain attempt to reach it. We should remove the carrot and walk forward with our eyes open. -- Raistlin Majere

    I don't think many people would care about the social values of a product. If a nice person, (myself) is selling something for a good cause, (which I have done before), will he sell better than the guy who is smarter, but ignores emotion?

    My money would be on the less emotional person, because I got confused as to whether I was being selfish or not, it was to help my marching band. I feel like half the people I went to pitied me but still said no. This one guy tried to cover up the fact that he didn't want any and told me to come back latter. I still sold a bunch, but probably not as much as I could have if I were more intelligent analytically. Cause then Id have detached myself from my emotions of doubt.
