"Have you thought of these two words - Hello & Hi Which is more appealing to you? and Why" This question was asked in an Interview where the job seeker was to be employed in a Managerial Post in a top Inc. Mine is Hi. What about yours? hi or hello.

Both are in vogue. Hello is a bit ancient whereas Hi is modern. It doesn't mean that you only use Hi and discard Hello. For, Hi should not be used in certain places such as when you are addressing your manager or a senior. There Hello is a must. Now, you well understand what's the difference between Hello and Hi.

I really don't have a favourite, it depends on the person, when some people say hello is like music to my ears, hi is more intimate but not necessarily better. Hi, I am selling tooth brushes does not have to be intimate, I don't know you and by saying hi rather than hello, you are not gonna make me decide to buy your product.

I belive that Hello is more formal , and i like to use it when i'm talkin with someone i don't know or the first time i meet :) Hi is used among firends more .. it indicates free relation and communication between the parties of the conversation ... i'd like to share you this song : Hello www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDZcqBgCS74 enjoy .. :)
