Having a deep understanding or empathy of users’ needs is a necessary skill for being a good UX designer and for being a good salesperson.
There are some factors that may inhibit a salesperson becoming a good UX designer in the general sense, but they depend more on the kind of salesperson the person was; a very competent used car salesperson may be very unethical and not have the customer’s best interests at heart, focusing instead on misdirection and deceit.
Being a good salesperson doesn’t make someone a good UX designer, but it doesn't preclude them from being one either. Being a salesperson, as with any other vocation, provides a person with a set of skills.
Developing skills as a UX designer requires more than being a competent sales person, but being well-rounded is never a bad thing.
