I've thought about this alot. I've been nice in customer service jobs, tho perhaps inclining to T rather than F. Always behaved well, and deep down I've appreciated the job and most of all, I have VALUED the encounter with all the customers. Still I feel there is something missing.
I've thought what it is and I have a clue. I've long known I don't live for the clients. The whole idea would be ridiculous. I mean, no-one's life can be centered about customers? And by this, I mean customers in a low- to average paying customer service job.
For some fantastical creation of mine, or some big customer with a demanding order and sophisticated needs I really care about, of course I'm all the way interested to fulfill their desires, give them the best service, etc. It's just that I don't get the idea how someone could be enthusiastic for selling a person a carton of milk. Tho there's one of my friends, an ISFJ - turned ENFP - a test oddity or the real deal, you ask me - - who's really like that
My customer service is more like usual people appreciation, and I do appreciate people. I just can't adore people who come to the premises of some business I'm working at. I guess my customer service skills have varied from below average to above average, but heck, I can't love my customers. I just don't do. Unless it's somehow established how the best prospects for developing and earning is in just that.
My communication with clients is nothing short of excellent. The tone, the intent, taking care of their needs, etc. I even usually know a lot of the subject and can give a more educated answer than most other people in similar kinds of jobs I've held. I think that's a winner combo.
Yes, I'm inside very disagreeable. But I adapt the role of the customer service person adeptly, without regret, becoming a kind, social, agreeable yet honest person for the purposes of conducting good business.
I'm just wondering if my kind of people (who don't love their customers more than themselves) are forever barred from establishing their good customer service qualities in some sectors of the job market.
Moreover, what do you think as customer service and what traits are associated with it?
