Sorry, I disagree -- when you have at least two equally qualified
candidates, how do you choose between them? Let's face it, many of the
people who apply for a job have the qualifications to do it. One may be
the best in some respects, and another in other respects. Since many of
the qualitites can't be quantified, all you're left with is a judgment
call. This is not dysfunctional. It is human.
