Are you a good negotiator?

Are you good at bargaining with others or are you a push over when it comes to arguing or business?

Do you often come out on top?



I'd like to think I stand my ground and get my point across in an argument. When it comes to business I'm still a rookie so I often have to think on my feet.

I'm pretty good at sweet talking, yes. It's especially easy if you don't just jump into it. Talk to them for a little bit, then work your magic. That's my technique, anyway.

I'm usually diplomatic. My objective is not to come out on top but to reach a point of agreement.

I use to think I was pretty good at getting my way, then I started talking to Echoes. He beats me with logic everytime.

When it comes to work, I'd say I'm pretty effective at closing the deal. It's all about finding a way of selling a policy to someone who doesn't need it, and really can't afford it to begin with.

Good times.

I'm like ysabel. I try to reach an agreement. Unless I'm negotiating with Angels. Then it's all about winning, and like she said, I usually beat her.

I use the pity technique; look so pathetic and sad that people pity me and give a good deal. Usually, the person will give me a good deal or we'll compromise somewhat.

Everything goes.
In business: very much so
In relationships: somewhat
With family: not at all

It depends what I negotiating, but most of the time I get what I want because I talk myself into it. I'm quick on my feet, so if someone throws a curveball at me, which he thinks I won't be ready for, I'm quick to responce, which shocks them a lot.

No, but my tommy gun is. Pew, pew, pew.

I'd say I'm good at negotiating (disagree, tommy's itchin'). A smile and a few choice words can work wonders. I never use threats or intimidation though. Pure pursuation. If words fail, sulking is definitely a good fall back.
