illogic in it.
Marketer A - How much is the product?
Marketer B - $27
Marketer A - I'll give you $10 for it.
Marketer B - Sorry but it's $27. No discounts.
Marketer A - Please, it's not even worth the $10.
Okay, this is where I will stop.
If it's not even worth the $10, why does marketer A want it?
I am trying to understand the mindset of people who reply back with
comments like that.
Here is my theory. Please feel free to give me yours because I do not in
any way claim to know the answer to this.
My theory is that the person is trying to rationalize his decision to pass
on the item (probably because he is too poor to afford it at $27) by
saying that it's not worth it anyway. This way, it makes him feel better
about not getting it.
And no, before you ask...this isn't a personal experience, but it did happen
to a friend of mine who is perplexed by this whole thing and is searching
for answers himself. He prefers to remain anonymous but would appreciate
any feedback that would help him understand this behavior.
All my years of psych in college did not prepare me for the illogic in that
If it's not worth $10, why does he want it?
Sorry folks, but I just don't get it.
** EDIT **
Let me add that THIS is how I would have responded to the last comment.
"Then why do you want it?"
