THE INTERVIEW QUESTION (archive)

I have been running a few interviews over the last few days and asked a peer to be part of the process. As this is for a sales position, he has a few specific questions, one is the following:
You have a red cube, how many sides are on that cube?
You cut that cube in half, how many red sides do you now have?
If you count out the number and answer, you are the kind of person who jumps to fix problems. If you ask questions (Like – is it hollow?) then you are consultative in nature – meaning that you will listen to your customers, ask questions and take a consultative sales approach.
Me? I answered with the following:
There are 0 red sides because the world does not exist and we are all just an alien’s dream.
I detest stupid interview questions.
