The maths tutors at Hertford tried it on me, too. I think that if I went to a job interview tomorrow with that seating arrangement then I'd have the confidence to say 'I'm sorry, I can't see you both at once'. But if it tests initiative, it's an unfair test for an Oxbridge don to perform on a seventeen-year-old!

You've got to question the mental stability of a professor/lecturer/type who uses power arrangement seating on 17 year olds. It's the crassest kind of bullying, and no, what doesn't kill you doesn't make you tough, it just makes the dispenser of the disagreeableness a cunt. Big fish in small ponds. There is absolutely no need for Paulin to have behaved like that.
