"success depends a great deal on the way you talk or on how much you talk" - definitely yes! I have a friend who works as a top manager. We used to study at the University together and he never was a brilliant student. To be honest, he was quite a mediocrity when it came to academic knowledge. But now he really loves his job and believes in what he's doing, and people accept his point of view although he's not very good in argumenting.
