    Hello there @Rich123

    Welcome to the community, glad to see you join us.

    I'm not sure there's anything to worry about, of course they might seem like unusual questions but I imagine they asked them to gather further insight as to how your condition impacts you.

    I've not heard of the altercation question being asked before, but that doesn't mean it hasn't been asked to others, I'm sure there will have beeen a constructive reason for them asking such a thing which will have helped them to gage how your condition impacts you.

    Best of luck with the outcome.

    Hi and welcome to the community 

    I've not heard of anyone being asked the question about altercations but I don't think it will be anything to worry about 
    Jyst a way of asking how you interact with people 

    Good luck for the claim let us know how you get on

    There's no way for us to even guess the purpose of the question as we have no knowledge of your health conditions and what you have told DWP in your health questionnaire.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
