    Everyone has had a poor sales experience with an overbearing or overreaching salesperson. They are the person at your local computer sales shop that pressures you into buying something without explaining in full detail, why that product over the hundreds of others is exactly what you need. Have you ever run into the ignorant salesperson? They’ll stop you in the mall, ask for a few minutes of your time, and before you know it they are already running you through a transaction? Let’s make a commitment now, before we dive into the specifics, that you will never allow yourself to be duped into listening or buying from these salespeople. Furthermore, let’s agree that you do not want to be that kind of salesperson. You want to be a good salesperson! A good salesperson starts their sales techniques by understanding their product or market appropriately. This means they spent considerable time researching and understanding what they will be attempting to sell others, and they have a good grasp of the people who would want to purchase their products. This is what we call the salesperson’s background knowledge. This knowledge is integral for any successful salesperson because, without it, they will not adequately suggest or advise their customers on the products they need. Anyone can essentially understand a given market by spending the required time to research it – but, what parts of a salesperson are more intrinsic in their personality? 90% of a good salesperson comes from their personality and personal traits. The other 10% is attributed to the passion and being a people person. Question: Which of the following best expresses the main idea of the passage?
