Are you suggesting that there is ONE way to behave properly and that all other ways of behaving are improper? If so, this is consistent with your all-I-have-is-a-hammer approach to constructing technical documents. But it seems to me that different circumstances call for different modes of behavior.

Unfortunately, there will be those who adopt this "one proper answer"
approach to candidate evaluation. The chances are that someone who
doesn't know what questions to ask also doesn't know what answers
to look for. Companies that choose to adopt any canned interview
technique will be prone to adopting a "Stepford employee" approach
to hiring unless someone inside the organization is willing to
aggressively resist mangement's tendency to rely heavily on
something they paid some outside "expert" a lot of money for and
which therefore must be "better" than a home-grown methodology.
