There is an online test available for those looking to quickly establish their sales personality. Selling IQ, a side project from Ideal Candidate, looked at results from 20,000+ Ideal Candidate’s (a job matching site for sales executives) profiles, which includes thousands of top performing salespeople, and thousands of actual interviews, they were able to group salespeople into seven distinct categories. The categories were as follows:
1. The Straight Shooter
