We are faced with dilemmas every day in our life and it is our discernment in the crunch time that defines who we are and how far we will go. When it comes to wisdom, thinking ‘out of the box’ is what sets us apart from the hordes of people. These “others” just reflect what they have heard and are of the opinion that it is the right solution to the problem.
Talking about thinking out of the box, this guy just used his humor and common sense to nail a job interview by doing the same.
While most us during job interviews are formal and restrict ourselves to look the part or adhere to the tone of society, this guy used his wits to solve the dilemma they questioned him with.
The company handed out 200 applicants a test paper with just this question, and among them, this guy was the only one who got selected for the job. This is why!!
Moment of thinking… These are few questions asked in HR interview! The answers are really stunning and inspiring. Thinking out of the box! A must read…
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.
“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.”
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”
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.
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 (U – alphabet) Reply was “TEA” ( T – alphabet)
Alphabet “T” was before Alphabet “U”
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, you promised me that you will not ask me a SECOND difficult question!”
Sometimes just thinking out of the box is all it takes!
Share with your friend and give them a special moment of thinking…!!
