I'd imagine they'd mix in questions they already know the answer to to make sure you're telling the truth. Not too aggressive and not too submissive,” says a former SAS operator.

This is generally relegated to the "gentle" tortures - things like water boarding, sleep deprivation, exposure and the like - and though they are gentle they are only called this because you are unlikely to cause permanent physical harm.
