Intellectual Answers…………..

Go Through' it.

Question 1: You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night, it's raining heavily, when suddenly you pass by a bus stop, and you see three people waiting for a bus:

An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.

An old friend who once saved your life.

The perfect partner you have been dreaming about.

Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing very well that there could only be one passenger in your car?

This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job application.

You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and thus you should save her first;

or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to ! pay him back.

However, you may never be able to find your perfect mate again.

The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble coming up with his answer. Guess what was his answer?

He simply answered:

"I would give the car keys to my Old friend and let him take the lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the partner of my dreams."

Sometimes, we gain more if we are able to give up our stubborn thought limitations. Never forget to "Think Outside of the Box."

Question 2: What will you do if I run away with your sister?"

The candidate who was selected answered " I will not get a better match for my sister than you sir"

Question 3: Interviewer (to a student girl candidate) - What is one morning you woke up found that you were pregnant.

Girl - I will be very excited and take an off, to celebrate with my husband.

Normally an unmarried girl will be shocked to hear this, but she managed it well. Why I should think it in the wrong way, she said later when asked

Question 4: Interviewer: He ordered a cup of coffee for the candidate. Coffee arrived kept before the candidate, then he asked what is before you?

Candidate: Instantly replied "Tea"

He got selected.

You know how and why did he say "TEA" when he knows very well that coffee was kept before.

(Answer: The question was "What is before you (UA - alphabet)

Reply was "TEA" ( TA - alphabet)

Alphabet "TA" was before Alphabet "UA"

Question 5: Where Lord Ram would have celebrated his "First Diwali"? People will start thinking of Ayodya, Motile [Janaki's place], Lanka etc...

But the logic is, Diwali was a celebrated as a mark of Lord Krishna Killing Narakasura. In Dusavataar, Krishnavathaar comes after Raamavathaar.

So, Lord Rama would not have celebrated the Diwali At all!

Question 6: The interviewer asked to the candidate "This is your last question of the interview. Please tell me the exact position of the center of this table where u have kept your files."

Candidate confidently put one of his finger at some point at the table and told that this was the central point at the table. Interviewer asked how did u get to know that this being the central point of this table, then he answers quickly that sir UA hr not likely to ask any more question, as it was the last question that UA promised to ask.....

And hence, he was selected as because of his quick-wittedness. ........

This is What Interviewer expects from the Interviewee. ....

Interviewer said

"I shall either ask you ten easy questions or one really difficult question.

Think well before you make up your mind!

" The boy thought for a while and said, "my choice is one really

difficult question."

"Well, good luck to you, you have made your own choice! Now tell me this.

"What comes first, Day or Night?"

The boy was jolted into reality as his admission depends on the correctness

of his answer, but he thought for a while and said, "It's the DAY sir!"

"How" the interviewer asked,

Sorry sir, your deal was to ask me ONE difficult question only and that you

will not ask me a SECOND difficult question!"

He was selected.

Hi Gayatri,
gud Ques & Ans Indeed...
Vaibhav: I Agree that only a few of many would be havin such Intellectual mind. However, I Strongly Believe, Giving such ans can often land u in a soup. How would U judge the mind of the Interviewer. U ne'er know if the Interviewer, asking any question, is smart enough to understand such replies...
I myself faced a situation:
Ques: What if u were asked to jump off the window right now ???
(We were on the 3rd Floor)...
Me: I climbed the window & Jumped. Only to the Interviewers surprise I jumped Inside the Room (he ne'er said I'd have to jump Out).
I don't know what was he Xpecting, But I read b/w the lines & acted accordingly. To my surprise I wasn't selected.....

Hi Gayathri,
Very interesting indeed. I am reminded of a small story of a schhol cricket team. The boy failed in the 4th standard and could not be promoted to the 5th standard. The other boys were very upset as this boy who failed was an excellent cricketer. His non-passing meant that the middle school team will be very weak. So, all the students went to the Head master and requested him to some how promote the boy to the Vth standard.
The Head Master agreed subject to the boy passing a very simple test.He told the student that he will ask him the spelling of one word. If he correctly stated even one alphabet of the word he will promote him. All the boys were overjoyed as the dullest boy could pass this test.
The Head master asked the boy to spell the word "COFFEE". The boy answered the question but failed.
He had spelt the word as "KAUPHY". Not a single alphabet was correct.
