    Interesting. A psychological approach to doing business is something that's not really new but is still one of the least underestimated concepts when it comes to business and marketing. And you can see just how much psychology can affect certain situations just from the example given where certain words can affect the court setting. In the end,whether you make a sale or not would depend on what people feel and what they are thinking just as much as how much you charge and how good the quality of your services are.
