There's a fiendish trick some people play. It's called, "Misleading
Pleasantries." They start "interviewing you,"
asking "probing questions." Then suddenly, they make a
sly reference to a movie they've seen that leaves you dumbfounded.
Or they say something "playfully sarcastic," with no obvious
way to respond. This is a perfect opportunity to simply say, "BELIEVE
me." In short, they "dumbfound you," and you
respond, "BELIEVE me,"
without even thinking! ... as a signal you're perfectly
aware they're trying to dumbfound you! Obscurity, in and of
itself, is an attack, and there's no need to make the slightest
effort to process it! (Source: taxi1010.com stargate20)
