Hi Y'all

The questions I have liked best are: 1. You are in a sailboat over the
deepest part of the Pacific Ocean. You drop a 10 lb. cannon ball over
the side. How long will it take to hit bottom? and 2. Using a dummy
had grenade, ask the interviewee to sell you the grenade.

#1 tests reasoning and logic skills and the general background
information necessary to make rational assumptions and provide answers
in the face of inadequate data.

#2 tests the ability to think on one's feet, extemporaneous speaking and
sales skills.

Answers? Think about #1. #2 - Pull the pin and ask the interviewer to
carefully hold the grenade for a minute while ensuring that the handle
doesn't pop off. You have now created an unmet need for your customer.
Sell the pin.

John Gilger
