    Like, I understand totally what you're saying, I just think you misunderstand what I'm saying. You might know your stuff inside out...and do 60% less well than you should through reacting badly to the pressure. I've not found a way round the nerves, so I learn the stuff even better...and then even better than that...by a kind of insane work strategy you then get to the point where even doing less well than you should everything is alright.

    Maybe its not for everyone
    OK, well, that might work for you, but, I assure you, I know this stuff as well as I'm ever going to know it, and I think it'd just needlessly stress me out to keep going over it over and over.

    Besides, my factual recall in the interview I messed up was absolutely fine, as it was in the parts of other interviews that I've messed up. It's just how I cope under pressure that's the issue.
