The Lighter Side of Technical Interview Questions

I hate those puzzle type interview questions. I am sure that they show some level of aptitude about something, but I’m not typically a puzzle person. I’m a let’s solve this person, and I rarely figure out the answers.

Someone send me this interview text, which supposes that someone tried one of those questions on Nobel Prize winner Richard Feynman. It’s rather humorous.

Note that I wouldn’t recommend this. Likely your application would be scrapped by the second or third answer you gave to this.

I really like that one.  The responses by the interviewer (to Feynmans proposals) seem far too common place.
