How To Deal With Tough Question To Answer?

If you have to deal with a tough question to answer, there are a few things you can do.

  1. Take a deep breath and try to relax. This is not the time to get flustered.
  2. Answer the question as honestly as possible. There is no need to lie or skirt around the issue.
  3. If you don’t know the answer, say so. It’s better to admit that you don’t know than to make something up.
  4. If you need more time to think about the answer, ask for it. There is no shame in admitting that you need a little time to collect your thoughts.
  5. Be prepared for follow-up questions. The person who asked the original question may want clarification or more information. Be prepared to answer them honestly and to the best of your ability.
  6. If all else fails, smile and say, “I don’t know.” It’s better, to be honest than to try to bluff your way through the question.
