Do we observe these simple facts? Are they part of our grain? Do we follow them scrupulously in personal or professional life?
• We should not just see but observe the customer as well as the situation. Observing provides us an opportunity to analyze the personality as well as the situation.
• Every time we meet a customer we should not try to show too much of familiarity since we do not know the circumstances under which we are meeting them.
• The customer who is not interested may start looking at the watch or may start doing some work on the computer providing us a hint that we should leave.
