I was in court yesterday going toe to toe with a defense barrister.
I had him on the ropes a few times.
No, the fashion police had not caught up with me!
I was a witness, a victim of a fraudster, who of course was innocent!
If you’ve ever been a witness before you’ll know that being cross examined is not nice.
You feel like you’ve done something wrong as they try to tie you in knots.
Anyway, I know it wasn’t personal, he had his job to do defending ‘Dr Evil’.
He pressed my buttons a few times but I just kept referring him to the TRUTH of what had happened.
You see Defence Barristers use a method of asking questions called ‘leading questions.’
It’s also referred to as ‘suggestive interrogation’.
Let’s keep this specific…
Suggestive interrogation – Did you do your exercise yesterday?
Open questions – Could you describe what activities you’ve done this week that benefit your health?
You see when it comes to your health I’m actually pro a bit of ‘suggestive interrogation.’
Have I done any exercise? Its yes or no.
Have I eaten rubbish all week? Yes or no
Are my clothes feeling tighter? Yes or no
It’s the quickest way to get to the TRUTH sometimes, albeit painful.
Then asking yourself that ‘open question’.
What am I going to do about it?
