While browsing some career articles, I came across a good tale that teaches the nag of answering tough questions at the interview. I am pasting it below... check it.

"Its a tale about student and the wise old rabbi. The scene is a seminary, where an overly serious student is pressing the rabbi to answer the ultimate questions of suffering, life and death. But no matter how hard he presses, the wise old rabbi will only answer each difficult question with a question of his own.

In exasperation, the seminary student demands, "Why, rabbi, do you always answer a question with another question?" To which the rabbi responds, "And why not?". If you are ever uncomfortable with any question, asking a question in return is the greatest escape hatch ever invented. "
