Everything is possible, if you can have fun doing it
"you always have 3 choices...the right one, the wrong one and a better one"
This is going to be fun! What follows is one of those fascinating stories that circles around the internet. Supposedly, it was used as a job application test. Try it yourself?
I couldn't find out who wrote it or whether it was actually true..but really who cares?
You are driving down the road in your car on a wild, stormy night, when you pass by a bus stop and you see three people waiting for the bus:
1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
2. A very old friend who once saved your life.
3. The perfect partner you have been dreaming about.
Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that there could only be one passenger in your car? Think before you continue reading. This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job application.
You could pick up the old lady because she is going to die, and thus you should save her first. Or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to pay him back. However, you may never be able to find your perfect mate again.
The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble coming up with his answer. He simply answered: “I would give the car keys to my old friend and let him take the lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the partner of my dreams.”
Now tell me ....whouldn't you hire a candidate with an answer like that?
Funny and beautiful me thinks!
