Consider this scenario, which was once used during a job interview:
While driving home one dark and stormy night, you pass a bus-stop where you see three people waiting for the bus:
- An old lady who clearly does not have long to live
- A lifelong friend who once saved your life
- The perfect partner you have been dreaming about
Knowing that you only have space for one passenger in your car, to whom would you offer a lift?
Consider your options…
The old lady is frail and nearing the end of her life, so perhaps she deserves your help?
Your lifelong friend once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to repay him for his selfless act.
But… this might be your one and only opportunity to find your perfect mate!
Which one would you choose?
In this particular scenario, the candidate who was ultimately hired (out of 200 applicants) was the one who gave the following answer:
“I would give the car keys to my lifelong friend and let him take the old lady to the hospital. And I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the partner of my dreams.”
