Once again, when I relaxed a little and told an anecdote, I was "corrected" by one of my colleagues, who said we should turn our attention back to the candidate. Never mind my colleagues' irrelevant anecdotes that eat up everyone's time.
I need to remember, before the next interview, to focus on maintaining silence as much as is possible.
It's simply not worth it to let go and to try to be myself around these people.
