Which profession best fosters good conversationalists?

For this thread, I was inspired by the bestselling author, Jim Collins, who argued that business schools teach their MBA students to formulate the best solution, whereas law schools teach their students to ask the best question.

This made me wonder, which profession best fosters good conversationalists?

  • Lawyers ask good questions

  • Hairdressers chat up their clients

  • Psychologists listen deeply

  • Journalists (that do their homework) glean good data

  • Actors make for storytellers

Which profession(s) am I missing?
