Subject: RE: BS: Dealing with 'Unreasonable' People
It's an old lawyer's trick; get the witness you're cross examining to lose his temper. There's a good chance he'll stop thinking and tell you exactly what he didn't want to. Even if he doesn't the judge and the jury won't like him. (Most judges hate courtroom theatrics.)
You don't think clearly when you're angry. That's why it's so important to keep your temper when dealing with someone difficult.
