Today, I had a job interview. The only moment I impressed the interviewer was when I talked about drama. He started to talk about a play I hadn't seen, but I decided to agree on everything he was saying. Suddenly he said, "the play doesn't actually exist." I silently left the room. FML

At least OP didn't decide to be a drama queen about the trick the interviewer pulled. P.S. I've done similar things to get people going, only to pull the rug out from under them. I once managed to convince my friend that Gypsies are of a different species from Homo sapiens. :P

In my opinion op hasn't even started the corporate chain but already is willing to do anything, including lying to the interviewer, to get what she/he wants. A true fucking modern business person.

It's not as effective as "Oh I don't know about that one yet" and then asking questions about it. Much better to show your interest in furthering your knowledge base instead of just being a sheep to be led.

Or just say "Oh, I didn't hear of that one yet" and then ask questions about it. Much better to show that you are interesting in furthering your knowledge rather than just being a sheep to be led.

10 - You just contradicted yourself. If it works all the time, then it'd be 100%
