Human interaction as the uploading and downloading of emotional information

"Selling is essentially a transference of feeling"
We are all, from our first moments of existence to our last, principally feeling and emotional beings; we are, above all else, what we feel.
Our perceptions of and interactions with our environment are mediated and interpreted through our feelings - and nothing happens to us without us having a feeling about it.
The most significant elements of our environment are other people, and our most significant interactions are with those people - these interactions are overwhelmingly emotion and feeling driven and dependent.
All interactions between people involve conscious and unconscious exchanges of information about their emotional states and feelings.
- In other words all human interactions involve the downloading (i.e. display) and uploading (i.e. perception and interpretation) of signals and information about respective emotional states and feelings.
