You might feel useless when you work with this person.
How can we get over these situations to stop the intimidation?
Prepare for Negative Responses If the interviewer is trying to see how you handle negative feedback, they may say things like "I've never heard a worse answer to that question before." Well, truth be told, they wouldn't tell you if they had heard a worse answer, but they're trying to intimidate and scare you.
Be ready for that negative response, and don't let it get you nervous.

They may use subtle scare tactics, or they'll rapid-fire questions at you.
