Best Ever Interview Questions

I’ve just been asked by a friend what question he might ask in an interview. A few days earlier i was asked the kinds of question someone might be asked in an interview at Oxbridge. Here are a few shots for both situations (probably less so for the job interview, but I like the idea of turning the tables and interviewing them).

  • Do you think you are smart?
  • What’s the worst question I could ask you?
  • What failure are you most proud of?
  • What’s more important; intelligence, ambition or luck?
  • What are you good at?
  • What are you curious about?
  • What have you been wrong about?
  • What are the limits to your compassion?
  • What do you regret the most?
  • What is influence?
  • What is courage?
  • What is the purpose of life?
  • What is the purpose of death?
  • How is your reality different to mine?
  • What would you remove from a burning house?
  • If you met an alien what’s the first question you would ask?
  • What did you learn last year?
  • What are you sure about?
  • What are you unsure about?
  • Tell me what I’m wrong about.
