The below has been sent to me several times from different sources, so I apologize that I cannot attribute it to any one source. I thoroughly enjoyed it and hope you do as well. If nothing else, I think it will provide a few minutes of enjoyment and thought in the course of a busy day.
THE QUIZ BELOW WAS DEVELOPED BY A PSYCHOLOGIST FOR HUMAN RESOURCE OR BUSINESS MANAGERS TO USE AS A TEST TO DETERMINE A NEW EMPLOYEE’S ETHICS & MORALS DURING THE INTERVIEW PROCESS.
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 elderly lady who looks as if she is about to die.
2) An 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 can only be one passenger fit into your vehicle?
You could pick up the ELDERLY 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 right answer that human resources and business managers want to hear is as follows: “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”.
