Man Was Told To Solve This Moral Dilemma In An Interview. His Answer's Genius. by Kelklein(m): 3:12pm On Jan 09, 2016
Man was told to solve this moral Dilemma in a Job Interview. His answer is genius.


Question:

You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night. 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. An old friend who once saved your life.

3. The perfect woman (or) man 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 a 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 dream lover again.


The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble coming up with his answer. I love this. I might actually use it sometimes for an interview situation.

He simply answered: "I would give the car keys to my old friend, and let him take the old lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the woman of my dream".

Never forget to "Think Outside of the Box"

Bro no genius there fro the reply, what if your old friend can't drive?

If am in that position I would simply pick them all, no how my car would contain only one person, when external bodies ain't inside.

Lastly how do u know she's truly your dream woman? Was it written on her face?

Bro I'll kindly advise you to live this thread for Lawma, (this is the first time am using this line on NL).

Thinking... OK


Old gidt though...


Let's think outside the box this way....

What if the old lady died in the car?

The old lady is an old contract tending to closure....

The old friend who favoured you is a profitable contract that resurfaced.

The dreamed lady is the contract you've been up and down about...

Bros, I'll go with the dreamed lady to hit it big...no time to rebrand old mama when nkechi dey dance awilo for ya front.
