In my experience,...

Three of the top characteristics include, - Being patient and knowing when to listen and when to speak - Being authentic by being yourself, not a half-baked replica of someone else - Delivering on promises made.

What are the top characteristics of persuasive people?

Hi Harun, My suggestions of pursuasive characteristics would be: - Confidence (if they are not confident in their own or their companies abilities then nobody else will be) - High level of Integrity (or at least perceived integrity). I would not be pursuaded unless I believed that the person was not plying me with BS. I would also look to possibly validate this integrity through 3rd party recommendations/references. - Experience (not 100% sure that this is classed as a characteristic but I could I would have a higher degree of confidence if somebody could demonstrate experience in the matter they were trying to pursuade me about) Steve Novotronix Ltd
