"A lot of people have this strategy where if they have a hard question they wait to ask it to the end of the interview because they think the person is going to walk out. But what they have to realize is, is that if the person walks out, they have a pretty successful story"

- Chuck Klosterman

About this Quote

In this quote, Chuck Klosterman is talking about a typical technique that people utilize throughout interviews. He discusses that some people will conserve their most hard or difficult questions for completion of the interview since they fear that the person being spoken with will become upset and leave. However, Klosterman argues that if the individual being interviewed does leave, it in fact makes for a successful and interesting story. This recommends that taking threats and asking tough concerns can cause unanticipated and potentially important outcomes. Klosterman's words serve as a reminder to not shy away from challenging conversations, as they might ultimately cause a more engaging and meaningful narrative.
