【Random|隨寫】Five Weird Interview Questions from Google|5個奇怪的問題

February 26, 2014, Wednesday
Google always well known as it's best company to work for,  according to The Guardian, the personal chief Laszlo Bock has listed five weird interview questions......

Do you have an IQ higher than 130? 
The worst possible answer here is "Yes." Bock specifically wants "intellectual humility", without which he claims people can't learn. Those who have been clever all their lives often commit, Bock says, "the fundamental attribution error, which is: if something good happens, it's because I'm a genius. If something bad happens, it's because someone's an idiot." Taking IQ tests and remembering the score suggests exactly the wrong combination of self-aggrandisement and insecurity. 
As I recalled, my IQ is not that much, my answer should be very honest and say "no" lo!!!

What shall we have for dinner this evening? 
Don't say "I don't mind" or "I'm easy, really" or "What would you like?" or any of that rubbish. If we're going to solve the dinner problem your opinion is required, so stand up and give it. This is the kind of "emergent leadership" that Google want: the willingness to take charge when required, and not take charge when not.
Ever since that's one time my friend told me is kind of impolite for not giving an exact answer once people asked you what to eat, so by now I'll try my best to give an exact answer!!!

Why did you choose the last five articles you read? 
What do you mean you don't know? Bock's first criterion was a type of intelligence that he calls "learning ability", which is defined as being able "to process on the fly … to pull together disparate bits of information." It doesn't bode well for Google's "structured behavioural interviews" if you go to pieces when a simple question like this is fired at your face. 
How about articles from bloggers??? Does it count??? If do so, I think it should be more than five duh!!!

Are you incompetent and lazy? 
You are? Excellent. Bock wants to hire people who feel "ownership" of the company's projects but also enough "humility" to do only what they usefully can. If you're incompetent, therefore, you're only going to ruin anything you get involved with, so never volunteering is the right call. Clever and active is another successful combination. 
I'm very lazy, lazy to do a lot of things......lazy to go out, lazy to eat, lazy to peel shrimp......

Do you have a track record of doing something really well? 
If so, that's a disaster. When faced with a problem, Bock explains that: "The expert will go: 'I've seen this 100 times before; here's what you do.'" A clever novice will usually also solve the problem, and while sometimes they fail this is more than compensated for by the valuable occasions when they solve it in new ways. People are better at things, in short, if they don't know what they're doing. If you do get in, you might find that a useful line on Friday nights. 
So far as I know I've troubles more than well done works...hahaha!!! Never have a record on anything......

  1. there are 1001 different kind of questions asked in interviews, but worse is that, there are 1001 different expected answers for each of the questions!! haha, so it's really depending on luck and the click you have with the interviewer lah.. the same set of answers that would please Bock may not please another interviewer in another company, or even within Google itself.. well, it's good to read this five questions and expectations as a reference though..

    1. Yup, but for me I think the best is 临场反应, that's best way to show how you can overcome the sudden incident!!!

  2. Very deep wor. There are so many employers and sometimes duno how to answer but a positive answer is always view as good la. For example employer ask whn can u start work. Better not sayI cant start now coz hv to gv to months notice. Rather reply it with a smile an say I will be ddelighted to start work in two months time.

    1. Nice, you've gave a very good lessen to me!!! Thanks ya!!! =]

  3. First question,
    I have to say I believe my IQ is high. I took an IQ test when I was 12 and based on the results, I was accepted to a good boarding school. And continued to be funded all the way till I graduate and decided not to continue my studies. Muahaha #bragging

    1. WOW, very impressive experience, glad you share it!!! =]
