It's intriguing and plays into common negotiation skills. I know a person who uses these skills a lot or at least I've seen him do it in person. You tend to want to act in a way that makes the perpetrator think you are on their side in order for them to open up. They are on a whole other level emotionally just in order to remain calm and consistently non-confrontational. I agree, its fascinating to see. Esp the "what pretending to be insane looks like"Ive been watching JCS Criminal psychology and its really interesting to see the detectives using social behaviour techniques to get the suspect to give them the info they want. the difference between that and what goes through my head in social situations is crazy. i cant imagine having that measure of social ability, its like a different world.
And some of the detectives can talk Non stop to non responsive suspects, its really interesting. have to say i did not realise how important social skills are for detective work.
