i bumped into these last night and it was a refreshing break… it points to paranoid thinking during stressful times… not that i know first hand about the r&s lab exam, but it seems realistic that for those 8 hours it would be very easy to become deluded by your own configuration… how many times have you done a practice lab where you configured something that appeared broken, and was broken, simply because you misconfigured it… i didn’t do that… actually, you did… it wouldn’t have gotten that way if you hadn’t… i could easily see myself falling into such paranoid thinking at a time like that… kevin wallace in his videos on youtube talks about this phenomenon… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ixhu7TZ7vxE&playnext=1&list=PLDmbik4NbmjJ5kvA-Pzt3mIGanMPw9qS1

he also mentions seeing things that because you believe are there, are there, but aren’t…

like this shit isn’t difficult enough, you also have to consider yourself as a potential enemy in the moment…
