The following content is considered nonlegal and nonbinding OPINION only, and does not legally assume any entity is responsible for the accuracy of any facts that may seem to be presented by any entity. Rather this is meant to be a starting point of research into the facts or truth. The standard of the reasonable person should be assumed with regard to any possible research into the facts or truth!
A control question that they likely would not be untruthful about should be asked first to see how they act then they are likely telling the truth. It is often best to know the answer to the question asked. Open ended questions can offer more interesting chain of tthought answers. It is best to remember that truth is often much more complex than fiction; long answers are often truthful. Short answers can be a means to change an uncomfortable subject.
Rather than ask questions, it can best to STATE what you are interested in an STATE you would like more information about the following...
Asking questions tends to indicate weak interviewing skills.
Requesting help or information or stating your viewpoint, policy or needs suggests stronger help seeking skills; think of a situation where an intelligence agent is recruiting a helper from a hostile region or a victim of sexual harassment is being told to not accept illegal behavior at a high class establishment.
Questioning tends to suggest questioning or lack of acceptance and can mean a hostile interview, which should usually be avoided, except during criminal trials, and can even throw a case if the answer to the question isn't known; for example, you must know someone is guilty of something and likely going to lie, but you can prove they are lying about the incident.
It can be best to not ask questions, especially during a job interview, and if the interviewer is doing most of the talking, which tends to mean you will be hired, and they may NOT like questions.
If a person is confessing guilt, it is good often to suggest disbelief to get them to keep talking and asking questions, and to hopefully prevent them from harming you, so you need to be in a safe place or to leave when hearing the worst cases.
Interviews should be conducted so that they tend to be private and confidential in cases where persons are in great need.
Usually only those seeking publicity for these business want to be questioned in front of the media.
Some may feel: get to the point, make it simple and stupid, we don't have all day, wrap it up.
It can be considered mean to try to make persons being interviewed to remember their sad memories.
Interviews should rarely resemble an interrogation.
Sometimes it is best to get right to the point and directly ask for what the interviewer wants to know rather than trying to trick the person being interviewed into revealing the truth, or to incriminate theirselve.
If a situation is urgent, it can be best to go to the location where an incident happened or to show images of that location to refresh an interviewee's memory.
Help a person feel happy and maybe they will not dwell on their unhappy memories.
However, sometimes saferooms and safewords are used to allow a person to re-examine a trauma or painful incident during a quasi-interview process.
THERE IS GREAT RISK AT NOT ANTICIPATING THE DANGER A PERSON WILL CAUSE IF THEY GET PRONE TO ACCIDENTS DUE TO A LACK OF TRUST OF OTHERS WHO THEM MAY FEEL WILL DO THEM HARM. THEREFORE, GREAT CARE NEEDS TO BE TAKEN REGARDING REINTERDUCING PAINFUL MEMORIES OF AN INTERVIEWEE. SOMETIMES IT IS BEST TO TRY TO AVOID PAST MEMORIES AND TO TRY TO GET AN INTERVIEWER TO HAVE THE INSIGHT TO UNDERSTAND THE SYMBOLS, INAGERY AND BEHAVIOR OF THE INTERVIEWEE TO SOLVE THE CLUES TO A PUZZLE, RATHER THAN TO ASK AN INTERVIEWEE ANY QUESTIONS. Understanding the human condition or view inner similar to interview.
Interviewees are usually most cooperative when they are happy, and less likely to clamup or lie.
