Leave the interviewing advice to those who know what they are talking about.
That is a pretty brutal reply. Without any details on why this is so incorrect.

Not necessarily. Showing too much eagerness and excitement is a often a fast track to the discard pile.
Most important, know why you're there. Show you understand the nature of the job description and you're not making it more to be than what's listed in the posting. You're coming in at such and such position and at such and such level in an organization - you're not organically beyond that and don't talk as if you are and don't inquire about topics which will be above your assigned duties.
The reason for your potential hiring is to provide them and the team and the company with a solution to a staffing and performance problem or shortcoming. They want to hear how you are the solution. It's not about being a good fit for you. It's about being a good fit for them and said company achieving the solutions they need.
Hiring managers don't want to hear about your long term plans for the position or for yourself personally or how you wish to grow and move up in the company. Hiring managers don't want to hear how you are coming for their job, they want to see you are a potential piece of their team so as they move up or are afforded opportunities you come with them as part of that team in terms of projects, career advancement, or other opportunities with other companies.
Personal details should be minimal. If you're in the area and looking for work because you've moved back home or you're getting married and relocating to the area, keep the answers there. Trying to leverage a death in the family, a marriage, a graduation, a job loss, or anything else to gain sympathy or favor will most often backfire on you. As a hiring manager, your future wife, husband, or child means jack squat to me and will probably just get in the way of you being 100%.
A job candidate should be asking 40-50% of the questions during the job interview. The interviewer(s) want(s) to be as engaged in the conversation as you are. Eliminate words from the speech such as "like" and "literally" and "uh," etc. etc. Never, ever ever take out your cell phone - turn it off before entering the building, sit up straight in the waiting room, and if you're offered a beverage, take it.
A candidate should be asking half the questions? Is this for real? Who knows, maybe it works this way in other industries. Certainly not mine.
And what if I decline a beverage? I have to pee more when I'm nervous, so why would I want to drink more and potentially have to pee at an inopportune time?
