How does a short commentary work?
A short commentary can have several functions: On the one hand, it acts on the other, since it is used as an answer. On the other hand, it also affects us.
One teacher explained that he was moving into the mode of fundamental astonishment with the word "Aha". If you combine your favorite short comment with such an idea, you will gain a certain distance from the other and still show an interest.
Like Commander Spock
With a short commentary, you can also win time when you have the silence and just look at it like in the Method 1 - The elegant repartee, so the silence and overstepping is too little.
Commander Spock, the rather sentimental half-Vulcan in the TV series Starship Enterprise, usually responded to ominous phrases with "Interesting!" Or "Fascinating!" Through this intellectual (pre-) assessment without emotional gut reaction, he builds a gap of from which he always keeps the overview.
Loud or soft
You can pronounce the short comment aloud or think it only for yourself. Time and distance you will definitely win.

|I beg your pardon?||Ah yes.||Just say!|
|Might be.||So so!||Soooh.|
The game with the emphasis
Also play with the emphasis here. The sentence "Women can not think logically," a participant answered with a long "Ahaaa ?!" with increasing emphasis at the end and a very interested look. She has elegantly put together a question that your opponent could only shyly keep silent about. The wave bounced off the queen and hit her attacker herself.
"Ahaaa ?!" in this way is a good short commentary for many situations and usually provokes a helpful and factual rectification.
