    Default Other NF's hate salespeople's fake Fe?

    We just had a sales lady over at our house the other day, and I have to say that it is just torture for me to be with someone who is pretending to think I'm fabulous, and pretending to think everything my children do is charming, when clearly she is just faking it all to make a sale. I can't stand inauthentic people and that drives me crazy. Does it drive you crazy, too?

    I hate it too. It feels unauthentic to me, and is quite manipulative. Things like this raise the skeptical/cynical flags for me.

    I struggle with dominant Fe.
    That girls are raped, that two boys knife a third,
    Were axioms to him, who'd never heard
    Of any world where promises were kept,
    Or one could weep because another wept.

    Yes, I hate salespeople. It's like, just tell me the facts without hyperbole or complimenting me, and I'll make up my own mind. I find I more often say no because I get annoyed and immediately want to deny them.

    I don't think anyone likes to be apprehended and manipulated into purchasing something, therefore, most do not 'like' salespeople.


    Dom Fe is great in nurses and service-oriented professions, that's for sure though.

    I hate the hard sell in whatever form, articulation, or embodiment it takes.

    This is why I cannot do it to others. This is why I cannot work in retail.

    I don't hate the people necessarily, its a gift and some have it. My brother is ESTP, I think, and they can have a wonderful way with promotion and getting a person matched with something that improves their condition. But I don't like liars of any stripe. And pressured sales make me want to run.

    salespeople love me.
    i buy everything.
    i like when they follow me like a puppy dog.
    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    I can't say it bothers me too much unless it's incredibly fake and incredibly pushy. Otherwise I just think they're doing their job.

    I live in Europe and many Europeans never miss a chance to bash an American. Customer service in Europe on the whole ranges from poor to appalling. (I'm from Canada, btw.) I've heard many Europeans say things like "I can't stand how fake Americans are when they want to sell you something, they're just doing it for tips" (or even just "I can't stand how fake Americans are.")

    In response to this, I tend to smile and say "so you prefer it when people give you 'real' service which is also appallingly sullen, misinformed and bad, which is the norm here? I'd rather have 'fake' customer service which at least gets me what I want and doesn't leave me wanting to kill the customer service representative and burn their corporate headquarters to the ground."


    EDIT: BTW, I love Europe, and would probably rather live over here than North America. But the bad customer service is one of the things I allow myself to rant and rave about.

    I mostly don't view sales people as actual people. They're combatants, or maybe knowledge sources to be used with some caveats. Their responses are usually not human, you are their food, they're little cannibals. Which is not to say that I'm not polite with them.
