Words to Identify an Auditory Buyer

After writing about the three primary representational systems, it is time to give you a list of the words using by the different systems.

This is Part Two of a Three Part Series on words using by a visual, an auditory, and a kinesthetic.

The key is to ask a general question and then listen to the response identifying the word usage patterns. Here are two general questions to use for this purpose in B2B Sales…

1.    “Describe to me…”
2.    “What would you change about…”

Fill in the blank in each question using your specific industry issues for a complete question.

Here are the Words for the Auditory Language
