  1. I and you are the most direct personal pronouns. However, generally speaking, most teachers prefer the less direct - one, some, others, the reader. The reason for this is that "you" when applied to everyone will make your statement untrue. For instance, You will enjoy this story.... I may not like the story at all, and will , therefore, not agree with what is said.
