Question I have is knowing when are you inferring hints versus challenging me to defend my position?

    You mean if they ask you a question and if it sounds like a hint? You should be confident in your answers, practice practice practice. Try your best to be as coherent as possible (ie think before you speak, many including myself have an issue with that). It’s okay if there’s silence for a medium amount of time, make sure your interviewer always knows what you’re trying to do.

      Let's say they ask questions, like "do you really think that's a good metric?" Where I would say "Yes, hers why.."

    • If you think it’s a good metric, understand why it is and can defend that pretty confidently, I think you should do so but just be open to their response as they probably know things about the solution you don’t.

      Even if it turns out you aren’t totally correct, you handled it well at that point.

    Find other metrics and compare them. They want to know how you think.
