Why lists of three: mystery, magic or reason?

Max Atkinson

The fact that the three-part list is such a commonly used rhetorical technique often raises the question of what it is about the number 3 that’s so special. We also know something about how three-part lists work in everyday conversation, thanks to a fascinating paper by one of the pioneers of conversation analysis, the late Gail Jefferson. This is not to say, of course, that we can never use longer lists in conversation without risking complaints.

Forbes Magazine Releases Their List of the 70 Most Powerful People

Last week Forbes Magazine released their list of the 70 Most Powerful People in the World.

If I were to create such a list, I’d add one important criterion that I believe reflects a person’s power: the ability to persuade people with the spoken word (yes, I think presentation skills are that important!). Should more women have made the list?
