I met a few business owners in various industries in the past. Their philosophy is exactly that. Close a sales as fast as possible. Give out as little information as possible. Never educate the customer. I saw stuff get sh** saying/teaching customer "too much".
I applied for the dog training position at petsmart and was turned down because I was "too" qualified. I had been around animals too much, and knew what I was doing with them. I had a positive reinforcement way to correct barking so that a shock collar wouldn't need to be used. They wanted someone who they could teach to train "their" way and they HATED that I didn't need to use a shock collar. When they asked me what my sales pitch for shock collars would be I said "why would I need a sales pitch for those if I can train without them? Isn't my job to use positive reinforcement?" They wanted me to sell the shock collar if a dog had a barking problem. Same with the invisible fence shock collars. Kiiinda worries me what they're teaching in those training sessions if I get denied a job for wanting to use positive reinforcement.
