The Interview Question You Should Always Ask
By eric on Jun 17, 2009
It has been way too long since I last blogged and forget how easy it can actually be. So here is a thought I wanted to share with all, what is a good interview question. Well this article seems to like "What do you do in your spare time?"
Even if you had learned about all of Captain Sullenberger's activities, you might have considered his obsession dysfunctional. Wouldn't you rather hire someone well rounded? Someone who has interests beyond the particular? Someone who might be a better communicator?
But people are often successful not despite their dysfunctions but because of them. Obsessions are one of the greatest telltale signs of success. Understand a person's obsessions and you will understand her natural motivation. The thing for which she would walk to the end of the earth.
Maybe its due to the fact that I am somewhat obessessive that this rings true to me, your mileage may vary
