Are you a good negotiator?
When you were trying to get the car keys, did you manage to convince your parent how logical it would be? To buy a used guitar for $25 instead of $35? To stay out past the curfew time? To buy a used car way under the sticker price?
Did you succeed with other negotiations?
Here is my 2 ½ year old grandson:
Benjamin: We need an idea. Let’s…watch TV.
Daddy: No…we need a better idea.
Benjamin: Let’s watch……TV.
Benjamin: We need another idea. Let’s watch a movie. On that TV.
To some, the art of negotiation is inborn; it
comes with the genes.
