I like this one because you can understand how a person defines success. You could make it more broad by taking out the word "career" to see how they prioritize their lives, but it might be too personal. In general, I like open ended questions unless it's technology related.“ – Lee Collum, Northcraft Analytics š  Would you rather win or lose? Why? š  “I send them a bit of homework ie. ‘We’re typically hitting our SLAs but sometime there’s a time where there’s a company-wide issue/ outage etc. So what would you do during that surge?” – Bill Liberti, Director, HumanTouch LLC
