You are not misleading declarer; you are thinking about the lead.
You make it sound as those these are exclusive, but they are not. You are thinking about your lead and
misleading declarer. However, misleading declarer is not permissible.
It is accepted that players have a right to think at trick one. Thus a declarer who deduces that RHO has a problem because he paused gets no redress: a pause at such time does not
show a problem on that trick.
