    Yeah.

    Because of the nature of the job, telemarketers pretty much have to exploit this in other people. This extends to other 'pushy' sales positions, too.

    I can only rationalize hanging up by the fact that they halfway expect their clients to hang up anyway.

    I use caller I.D. They always call from weird numbers. Anyway, I guess ENTP would be the best because they have some Ne+Fe to grease the wheels and they don't get upset by minor insults coming from unknown people. But like Whatever said (who is an ESTP, I know, but I still think it applies) it would be boring for them, they would have to stand still, attention span, etc. So I don't think anyone would really be perfect for the job. I could never do that though. I get anxious about calling my friends because I am afraid I will interrupt; I could never impose on someone I know even less. Also I couldn't handle all the rudeness. It'd be like getting spit on every 2 minutes.

    I've worked in door to door sales and in retail sales (and some wholesale work as well!) I am fine with upselling, but I actually think it takes a bit more stubborn determination and an attention span than I could manage
    I have to agree with whatever. It is totally boring. I like selling things to people because it can be interesting and engaging. Telemarketing? Blech.

    My standard response:

    "You're looking for Mr. Halla? Well I am too. That motherfucker owes me money so if you find out where he is please call me back."

    Extraverts. Fe, Ne, and Se doms would be best in telemarketing, or any sales position for that matter.
    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.
