Different Between A Sales And A Technical Person

Obviously there are lots of differences between a sales person and a technical person. I will only touch on one once point which is that the sales person usually do not like to stay long in a place. How do i know that? Well i have a friend who is doing sales all his life and my question to him was “Why do you want to be a sales person instead involve in technical area? Of course he gave me few answers but one answer that he gave was that he does not like to sit down in a repair bench for a long time! He told me that it was boring to sit whole day trying to troubleshoot electronic fault! Now this is one thing that differentiate us from the sales person, we as electronic repairer in fact prefer to sit down quietly (doesn’t mind if it take a whole day) to troubleshoot the fault till we could find the answer.

Sometimes we did not even realize that it had been more than 2 hours troubleshooting the fault and we did not find it boring in fact we find it very interesting because deep in our heart was that we need to settle the problem and find out what components that had cause failure to the equipment. When the problem solved, the satisfaction is beyond description and looking forward to repair more electronic problems. The more we repair the equipment the better we are! These are the things that the sales person would not understand.

    I worked in computer and office technology sales. I had to travel from one place to another trying to sell people product. to be honest with you, it was a good experience and good money, but it does not match the joy when i sit down and fix an equipment that has been trouble and find the answer even if it takes the whole day. it was a good combination...I am selling computers, fax machines, lcd monitors..etc and at the same time, I have an idea how these machines work therefore I can assure people about the quaility of the product I am selling.
    I am very happy with my workshop even sometimes the work is very slow but that is my passion and that is who I am.

    THESE LINE TOUCHED MY HEART BECAUSE I TOO HAVE THE SAME EXPERIENCE. ACTUALLY E REPAIRING ISN'T BORING BUT INVIGORATING.
