I think new traders and professional traders are divided into two groups. Professional traders can trade in Exotic pairs but new traders cannot trade in this pair. Major pair best for newcomers. Because the volatility of major and exotic pairs is not the same.
I only prefer major pairs! Minors and exotics are a bit unpredictable, at least from my experience. And I honestly don't understand why we need to dabble in something we're unfamiliar with when we can earn from the ones we're already familiar with.
