Not long ago, I sat in on a presentation at a business conference and thought I’d landed on Mars. The program topic was compelling but somehow the presenter managed to take us into outer space. No one was following him. I wondered why this is so complicated. The guy had managed to hide his brilliance under a bushel - seizing confusion from the jaws of clarity.

by Bettina Seidman - Mar, 2010
An applicant involved in an employment interview is anxious to please, to impress, and to persuade. And that is as it should be.

Stress makes people stupid. Think about it. In the face of the unexpected, fear, or hard criticism, we become confused, befuddled, even frantic.
