    Questions like that annoy me....interviews in general in fact. It's just an opportunity to see how good you are at blagging! People with the 'gift of the gab' tend to get all the jobs and do well in life. But having that 'gift' seems to be more a skill you're born with. It can also come easy with extreme self confidence, but some people, despite being very clever and capable of being employed, lack confidence for all kinds of reasons, which, in turn, means they don't shine in interviews.

    Shame really.

    I have 2 friends who were both IDIOTS at school. They'd admit it themselves. Both had to re-take their !!!!!!! GCSE's! But they had lots of self confidence and were good at, frankly, bullsh!tt!ing, and both now earn extremely good money at quite a young age and have lives that lots of my more 'capable', cleverer (yet introverted) friends could only dream of.

    All just seems like bravado to me.

    Person_one's 'example' was a good answer.

    I guess one should just memorize the good answers (even if they're not actually genuine and don't reflect your actual experiences) and fire them off when asked.
