    hello...
    stress interview means that the interviewers try to make you discomfort...
    so they will discourage you by telling discouraging word ...
    so at that situation you should be very calm and cool...
    don't take their words personally...
    don't overreact whatever they are telling you just listen carefully...
    don't loose your confidence..
    and if you know the answer then only you tell otherwise better to keep quiet...
    don't make a bad face in front of them...'
    speak very calmly and softly...
    thanks...

    Hello

    A stress interview means when a candidate is placed in a stressful situation to see how they react.

    The purpose is to determine how a candidate reacts under pressure.
    They may be asked difficult or inappropriate questions.
    They may be treated rudely.
    The best ways to deal with such interview are :

    -->>Be yourself.
    -->>If they try to stress you purposely, make yourself slow down and speak calmly and softly
    -->>Remember that what matters is not their question, but the quality of your answer
    -->>Be polite.
    -->> Dont get aggressive.
    -->> Do not argue.

    Thank you
