DON’T BLUFF IN AN INTERVIEW ***

by Uday Kumar on January 22, 2011

There is a general habit of bluffing when a question is asked and the person being asked knows only a part of the answer or vaguely about the answer.In the case of an interview,by bluffing something the interviewee feels that he has answered at least some part of the answer. But actually he has made things worse for him. Little knowledge is always dangerous. So one must strive to control himself and do not do such stupid things in an interview. This aspect must be strictly adhered to in any interview. If you do not know the answer to a particular question, it is better to acknowledge not knowing than trying to bluff your way through it. The interviewer will respect your integrity and honesty. All interviewers immediately take a stance of grilling a candidate, if they suspect him or her of lying. Bluffing will not be necessary if you have prepared for the interview. This article not only holds good for SSB interviews but holds good for all types of interviews.(THIS IS A PART OF THE STUDY MATERIALS THAT I AM PREPARING)

Hello sir !
I’m Alok pursuing B.Tech(final year)
I attended ssb for Navy (UES entry) last week and sadly, I could not make it.
So far what I’ve been able to analyze is that my performance in psychological test was poor.. I did 32 SRTs only and those who made it had done more that 45. Do you think this is the reason ?

One of those who made it had called me as his subordinate during his command task and he could not move even one step in that task.. and I had consistently performed very well in all the PGT, HGT and Command Task ! I don’t understand how I should analyze this..please help ..so that I can do well next time.

Res. Sir,
Thank you for your suggestion. Still I have some query about this & I require your guidance for this. Sir , will my son have to wait for 07 years (i.e. 6 months first sem.at Ezhimala then 4yrs. at CUSAT for B.Tech. in Naval Architecture then 6 months at Vishakhapattanam and then 2 years M.Tech.at III Delhi ) for getting his commission ? Will he get the same Permanent Commission after completing the Naval Architecture ? What is the type of physical training he will have to do at Naval Head Quarter Kochi,Willingdon ? Will he get the same facilities of living squadron (separate cabin) and mess and other which he had yet at Ezhimala ? Please reply Sir as early as possible. Sorry for the trouble.
