Below are some stats from a recent survey you might find interesting from a December online Swapalease.com survey that was presented to 2,500 people across U.S. and Canada.
54.8% of men said they do not look forward to environments where negotiation takes place (66.7% of women).
However, while 32.5% of men said TV shows like Pawn Stars, Storage Wars and American Pickers have made them better negotiators, 78.2% of women said the shows have done the same for them.
On the Swapalease.com website, 64.3% of men and 59.6% of women said they now look for ways to negotiate with someone looking to transfer out of their car, up from 61.2% and 38.4%, respectively.
Scot Hall, Executive Vice President of Swapalease.com said there is a big takeaway from these stats: “Negotiation still isn’t very fun for many. However, the Internet and popular TV shows based on barter and negotiation have elevated our confidence in negotiation-rich environments, such as car shopping.”
