  1. 1. This isn’t a question of humor but a test of how fast an applicant can come up with a witty answer. It doesn’t matter if it’s not funny enough, what matters is how he delivered the joke to make it appear funny which is part of good communication.
  2. 2. It is a test of how he can impart knowledge without using deep terms and probably concepts that may not be understandable by young children yet. It is better to let him explain something that is not work-related so he can talk freely.
  3. 3. The question is not a judgment on the person’s character or choices but will reveal how deep his level of awareness about himself, and the excuses he has for not changing or altering behavior.
  4. 4. It is important to know if an applicant is ready for big challenges such as this. It measures the amount of trust and confidence a person attaches to himself and if it borders on being arrogant and cocky.
