I have no problem with using it as an opportunity to sharpen
interviewing skills. However, make the questions something you can learn
from and apply to the next interview...don't squander them.

BTW...I respond to the "5 year" question seriously. Someone might say "I
want to progress into project management" or something similar, so that
maybe the interviewer knows that tech writing is just a stop until
something better can be found. I, OTOH, use it to explain that I'm doing
exactly what I want...I just want to do it better and better.

Why not? ;) If an interviewer gave me a loop like that, I'd call them on
it or run with it.
