I had to take a 150 question psychological exam yesterday as my final stage of interviews for this position I am up for. A bunch of the questions were like this:
Choose which represents you most and least:
– I think rules and regulations should be followed regardless of consequences
– People are trustworthy
– Money should only be spent if it increases your power or position
– Good leaders should consider the feelings of all the staff before proceeding
Yeah. There were about 100 of these kinds of questions.
Then there was a logic section. I am going to put it out there…. I only ever failed ONE class in my life and it was LOGIC. Sure, I retook the class and got a B+ leading me to believe:
All students fail the class if the teacher is supremely bad.
The teacher of my logic class in college was supremely bad.
I failed the class.
OK, all students didn’t fail… but a bunch did. I hated that class. Which is so funny because I consider myself a pretty analytical person. But I hate these kinds of questions and love them all at the same time. Weird, no?
Anyway, I am getting off track. Yesterday I had to answer 50 analytical questions like these.
Select the choice that best completes the relationship:
1) 23: 3,983 as 32: ?
2) C A R R ?
3) 60 30 20 15 12 ?
5) Which sequence doesn’t belong?
So now I am just waiting for a call to find out if I am smart enough and emotionally stable enough to be offered the grey office job. Wish me luck. I think.
