The use of ludicrous corporate-speak in the workplace might function for some people as a sort of magical means of separating work-life from real-life. Saying, as I just overheard someone say, "What's your estimation of their receptivity?" might serve as a ritual reinforcement of I-am-at-work, where the more human "Do you think they'll like you/be interested?" would tear down the boundaries between work and life and create a harmful rift.
I don't know if anyone actually uses it this way, consciously or unconsciously, and if anyone does, I don't know how many do. Nor do I know how effective it is. But thinking of it this way makes me less inclined to hate it. Anything that helps remind us that our time of being exploited is or at least can be separate from our time of being what we want is a positive thing.
