An “ideal marketing mind” would be balanced equally between analytical and verbal abilities, with excellent communications skills, including listening. Marketing practitioners should be well-organized, self-motivated, conscious of time, and somewhat aggressive; emphatic, understanding, and solutions-oriented, with a firm grounding in the behavioral science; and imaginative, creative, expressive, and persuasive. The ideal practitioner would be cordial and congenial, easy to work with, and would truly enjoy meeting new people in new places.
Nobody possesses all of these qualities. But everyone has some of these qualities, and all types of persons flourish in the marketing professions.
