It is essential that sellers and salespeople understand how crucial emotions are to decision-making and how to simulate your B2B buyers’ emotions.
Although, your limbic system or emotional brain, which stores and remembers past experiences, is thought to have developed out of the first reptilian brain. The orbitofrontal cortex connects the feelings generated by the ‘old brain,’ limbic system and is responsible for integrating deep-seated emotions into decisions. Recent advances in research from neuroscience, evolution, medicine, and psychology, have shown that the brain biochemistry emotional signals are felt throughout the body, including the gut, the heart and the head. We all experience bodily sensations, transmitted by the peptides or ‘reaction’ to the stimulus delivering greater sensory awareness and essential signals that, if you learn to read them, will assist your decision-making.
“If the brain can’t feel it can’t make up its mind!”
