Dediu has no false dichotomy in the sentence ou quoted. Not all either/or constructs are wrongly closed on less then the number of solutions to a given problem.

But since you in your own conceit deign to chastise a Tufts and Harvard graduate, please exhaustively elucidate to the perceived ignorant the entire set of buyers over which there is closure.

The beauty and effectiveness of critical thinking isn't in knowing everything about everything. Its about identifying limitations in conceptions and seeking alternatives :)

Buyers are either needful of a job to be done or not.

I understand what the man was trying to elucidate ~ that the questioner was looking at the wrong data. However, many, many buyers are not "needful" at all ~ they don't need the product; they simply want the product. An incredible amount of money is spent on advertising geared exactly to those who want, but do not need. Hence the false dichotomy and / or oversimplification.

Oh wow of course! Otherwise there wouldn't need to be market research - simple dissemination of information would be adequate enough.

Excellent point ma'am.
