How Do I Answer: A Totally Stupid Question?

As strange as it seems, there are the rare question that is out of left field and in no way pertains to the position, your skills or your background.

Nevertheless, you may be faced with how to handle yourself well in these situations.

Examples of these questions: What kind of animal would you be? If you were a color what would it be and why?

They may have read some self assessments that used these questions as a mean of further identifying their personality. Where ever the source, these do occur. Keep a sense of humor.

Answer: I’ve never thought of that before. OR I guess the color of your tie.
