I think this says a lot about how some men see women. They naturally assume they are smarter than us, and that anything that infringes on their version of events in which women are either mislead or less intelligent, has to be responded to by belittling our ability through explaining. If they can’t disagree with us, they simply repeat our point back to us to hold onto their position as superior educator. They knew all the facts. They didn’t need to read our article because they already knew it all. How nice we tried. Now back off to the kitchen.
Well, I can tell you than in any selling class I have ever taken, and I think it’s part of most communications classes in general (the kind you take in business), I have been *trained* to repeat back to the speaker what I heard them saying. So I can can verify that what I heard is what they meant.
You date salesmen or other people who have taken business communications seminars or classes?
