I can see why you would be a successful mortgage broker/insurance salesman. Because the BS just never ends. Anytime someone has a reasonable question/comment it is met with a giant sh*tspray of nonsense and people get worn out trying to work through the BS.

FWIW, the overwhelming majority of insurance agents I have been fortunate enough to work with have generally been quite knowledgeable, very receptive to using data to buttress their presentations, and although they know how to "sell", they also do a good job of avoiding "BS". Most have also been successful over the long term, so "BS" probably doesn't work well for extended periods of time.

Standard caveats of limited universe, anecdotal data, I may have biases of my own in this arena, etc. But it's probably like any group - most are pretty good, some are great, but there's always a few bad apples.
