This is a situation that is meant to allow you to question and
think about your own reactions and decision making.
It was used on a job application where 200 applicants were
in ‘competition’ for the same position.
I hope this will lead you to a higher level of Enlightenment:
You are driving 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 elderly lady who looks as if she may be about to die.
2. An old and good friend who once saved your life.
3. The perfect man or woman (if you are single) one you
have been dreaming about.
Which one would you choose to offer a ride?
There can only be one passenger in your car.
This once was used on a job application to
determine future employees’ morals and ethics.
You could pick up the elderly lady since she is going to die,
thus you should save her first.
You could take the old friend since he or she saved your life.
You own him or her this favor.
You may never get another chance to be able to find your perfect
dream man or woman, however.
The candidate who was supposedly hired out of 200 Applicant
had no trouble answering this question.
Think hard and long, since this may be your best Life Decision
you make today!
The Winning Candidate for Job Application simply said:
“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 woman or man
of my dreams.”
Moral of the Day:
“We gain more if we are able to give up on our own thought limitations.”
