It seems a lot of what he's talking about is how to deal with anxiety. One way to do this that I've found extremely useful is just to say "I've gotta be honest, I'm feeling a little anxious about this." Not just in interviewing, but in anything in life. If you are willing to be vulnerable, oftentimes that allows you to breathe and the person you share the vulnerability with will come to your rescue (i.e. help to set you at ease).

That said, don't be needy. Just acknowledge your anxiety.
