Great orator is those who depict their thought most readily without explaining much. A good orator has the power to convince anyone through their wordplay.

- Never judge a person until or unless he speaks: don’t pre-judge someone before you have a conversation with that person. Let him utter a word before you get to the conclusion of framing his image in your mind. How a person thinks can be determined by how he uses words in any situation.
- Taunting and sarcasm will make others feel dumb: Avoid using words that will question someone’s ability to think or their approach to the technicality of something. Appreciate their thought process and, if necessary, try to correct them most politely rather than mocking or taunting them. Making them understand the situation in a most polite way will make them eager to learn from their mistake rather than being left out and feeling foolish.
