* A person who can gossip effectively and with different type of people is often well liked and accepted. There is always someone to talk about (although such a person is also talked about behind their back but thats besides the point).
* Such a person can always carry conversations with anyone
* By gossiping effectively, you can find out secrets about other people
* There is no smoke without fire. If you were to listen to the gossip, even after throwing out much of the emotion of the person gossiping, you can actually learn something about the topic, whether it be another, office politics, promotions, or demotions and so on
* As gossip is often used by weak people it can actually be harmless as long as it stays between a few friends of the weak. For example, a person is brutally ridiculed and talked down to in a gathering by another stronger, perhaps arrogant person. Now the victim may go out and bad mouth the stronger person to his friends and often that is enough ...more
