What was the “weirdest” job-interview question you have been asked?

“Would you laugh at my jokes if you found them lame and not funny?”

My interviewer was no less than the managing director of the hiring American software company & it was obviously a trivial question with a hidden smile to it, to wrap up an unconventional, quite relaxed job-interview.

My spontaneous answer was a typical sober up-front one (bordering on “rude” in some cultures):

“No, probably not” [pause] “Is that a problem?”

I got the job for other reasons (I’d like to think) & he turned out to be a very funny, amicable & inspiring guy (really; he isn’t reading along anymore!)


What do you think? Can you please provide your feeback? :-)
