    Default Ideal Type(s) for Telemarketers

    I just had one call me, and I said no the first time, he continued to talk. I told him again no thanks, and that I was about to hang up. As I hung the phone up he was rattling off a phone number that I could call if I had any questions.

    It just sparked the question: What types would be suited for that type of job?

    I'm thinking an ExTP would be ideal- having that ability to talk to people and take rejection and hear all kind of rude and ignorant crap thrown at you.

    Anybody else?

    Clearly INFPs.
    Weathergirl: District 38 is sunny. Slight rock showers this morning. Chance of rock showers into the afternoon—20 percent. District 39 is cloudy. Chance of rock showers this afternoon—10 percent.
    Edward: Bebop here here! Alright woo hoo!
    Weathergirl: Chance of rock showers today upgraded to 90 percent.
    Edward: Really.

    When they call asking for Mr. Jaguar, I say: "He died last week."

    Isn't that a stereotypical ENFP position? They can charm you, and motivate you, and know what's good for you, and reason with you, "champion" the product or cause, etc.
    I would think any Get Things Going type and the ESTP, though the ESFP might get bored with it, I imagine. The ENTP might be good also, though they might not care for it either.

    That doesn't work though. Then they try to sell crap to whoever they think you are ;P.

    LOL I can't say that about myself man.....

    I just say I'm busy and can't talk, and if they try to persist, say I'm hanging up and hang up.

    I don't like hanging up on people tho. That's rude.

    insults made by people who don't know me and know nothing about me don't hurt me at all. i don't think most F's are that sensitive.

    ugh... I can't stand cold calling people... it's BORING And... I'd have to sit still!

    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
