Comment Something I learned during an internship (Score 3, Insightful) 276

Pretend you don't understand and ask him questions. "I need to work with this team leader, can you explain his role please?" "I need to know what I can and can't ask of this consultant, can you clarify his mandate?"

He'll either give rational logical answers - in which case you can accept them or counter with more questions - or by trying to answer your questions he'll realize his reasons for doing all those things weren't as great as they first seemed to him - in which case you win - or he's a politician and changing his mind is flip flopping, so he'll dig in and defend himself at all costs - in which case you're screwed, but if that's the case you're screwed regardless.
