Why do interviewers ask those strange questions?

Unexpected Interview Questions

Some interviewers will ask strange questions that don't seem to have relevance to the job. These questions are designed to see how well you think under pressure.

Feel free to pause, consider and even repeat the question before you answer. Be as creative with your answer as they were with the question. Incorporate your work-related qualities into your answer and avoid getting too personal.

To prepare for strange questions, consider the following:

1. If someone were to write your biography, what would it be titled?
2. If you could be any character in fiction, who would you be, and why?
3. If you could have dinner with anyone form history, who would it be, and why?
