False Dichotomies

In the context of synthetic telepathy psychological warfare, an often used tactic is to present two choices to a target, with a time allotment, and the insistence that a far worse outcome will happen if no choice is made.
Despite these claims, targets must strive to resist and accept that the answer to these false choices and high-pressure tactics is often "why not both?" or "neither". The long term goal should be to fully dismiss and ignore the query completely, but that takes time to master, and choosing your own third and fourth options, or the above responses of both/neither is an adequate mental workaround in the short term.
