That's exactly what I did wrong. :)
Knowing me, not knowing how I should do whiteboard interviews I've got nervous, ultimately auto-sabotaging my performance. So what this test proved of me is that when I'm agitated I cannot articulate the solution of an algorithm. It's something that for me has to do more with public speaking than the job itself. I never have that feeling at work, not like that!

 

The interviewer did a bad job: it’s his duty to make you feel comfortable and safe. And it’s his job to animate a conversation if you’re stuck in your thoughts. And it’s his duty to guide you to write or discuss top level pseudo code.
Then whiteboard interviews make sense...

"The interviewer did a bad job: it’s his duty to make you feel comfortable"

Agreed. I always try to make people feel comfortable because if they don't, I ultimately don't get a chance to see what they are really capable of.
