They also have a strong ego and can cross the line or be hurtful if they are not paying attention to the reactions of their audience. Everyone loves a good joke, but not at their own expense.
Besides, the problem in their artistic conversational skills is that it can make them an excellent liar. When they tell a story, they tend to convey it in such a manner that it seems funnier or scarier or heightened in some way. They do this for effect and to get a reaction.

The Mercury in the 5th house astrology predicts that if the natives are trying to teach something, then a straightforward conversation might get the point across even better.

However, the natives should avoid taking things too far. They need to desist from getting unduly attached to certain things, which can inflate their ego and bring sufferings to their lives.
