I used to answer opinion polls on the phone a few times. I was often asked questions like: Are you afraid of foreigners? You could only answer yes or no. Such nonsense. I can't answer one or the other. I'm afraid of people threatening me, it has nothing to do with foreigners. Sometimes even my boss tries to make me commit to a certain statement. ( clearly, these are not questions whether I want more salary) Usually this turns into longer conversations, where I try to to look at the matter from several angles. When sometimes people try to corner me by urging me to answer yes or no, I turn the tables on them and tell them answer the next question with yes or no. Then I ask a dog lover, for example: You still beating your dog? (Instead of beating the dog, you can use any other activities. Things you think might make the other person uncomfortable.) If he answers yes, then I say, ok, you're not a dog lover after all. If he answers no, then I can say that he obviously used to beat his dog. No matter what he answers, he used to beat his dog, or still beats it. Honestly, all those psych tests I took, I've been having my problems to give a clear answer. How is it with you?
