I had over the last years a few times an interview and I was thinking everything went perfect. I was able to answer the questions, I was able to hook in to chit chat about some technics they use and for some reasons every question I wouldn't have been able to answer appeared along diferent questions of other interviewers or even from the same, so I could just avoid the question without being suspicious, since I cant answer 2 diferent questions at a time. To my suprise, they never came up a second time.
And I never got the job.
Now I had an interview which I left with the same feeling. And in my desperation I compared this one to the others and tried to figure out what are the common things and the diferent things that appeared.
And I realized its allways that questions I feel not able to answer just get skipped without me having the impression that I revealed not being able to answer it. I figured out that topics mostly get skipped when I might appear somewhat... strugling. Most of the time thats due to my Aspergers, which results in having sometimes trouble in understanding what way a question was meant, but it might be that I have the same appearance of struggling1 when not being able to answer a question. So is it likely that apearing thoughtful could let interviewers assume I'm not able to answer the question? If so, am I supposed to come up with that question again myself? how is it with multiple questions I'm able to answer, should I do with them, too, meaning any question I forget to come up with again might mean they think I wouldn't have been able to answer it?
note for clarification:
I'm asking if this is some well known kind of interviewing technique, as I experienced this in almost all of my interviews I had a good feeling with. If it isn't I can also accept the answer, that my observations might just have been coincidently, as there is no such thing.
1By struggling I mean, appearing somewhat thoughtful
