Always Say Less Than Necessary

When you are trying to impress people with words , the more you say , the more common you appear, and the less in control.

Even if you saying something banal, it will seem original if you make it vague , open-ended and sphinx like.

Powerful people impress and intimidate by saying less. The more you say , the more likely you are to say something foolish.
