Breaching Experiment?

Is a Breaching Experiment the same thing as fucking with people to get a reaction?

Seems it has practical value.

Breaching anecdote-
A med school friend of mine was interviewing for a psychiatry residency and was asked the following questions:

  1. So, are you heterosexual? (A blatantly illegal question)
  2. So, what if you had a patient that you just really wanted to fuck? (He said that he should have just left the interview at this point.)
  3. Studies show that 85% of psychiatrists require psychiatric help themselves. What do you think about this? (He said that he wanted to reply that he thought the statistic was about 15% low.)

After being asked these questions he was certain that he did not want to go there for residency, but he stayed long enough to get the free lunch.
