Whereas women will more take the attitude, “Well there’s a pie there that’s only so big. Why don’t we see how we can make that pie go further? Or why don’t we work at making another pie then I can have a pie, and you can have a pie and we’re both going to have more pie.” So it’s very much about collaboration and win-win.
Is this your experience too?
Hmmm....I think I just felt something shift in my maleness.
It's interesting that you choose to differentiate on the basis of sex David, because to be honest, my own personal view is that those kinds of generalisations are as much at risk of being false as making generalised judgements about people based on other aspects of their beings and/or personality.
But the more interesting question is that if your philosophy is in fact true, then wouldn't women be better served by a woman, whose possession of the very qualities you claim they own exclusively cannot therefore be denied?
This also further begs the question about what exactly you're saying about your own services, if all men play to win at their customers' expense.
I know the above could be construed as either harsh or personal, but I sincerely do not intend it to be so. They're just thoughts that sprang to mind after having read your comments, and I hope you'll accept them in the genuine spirit of curiosity in which they were intended.
