Choices

A company was hiring new staff. One question in the written exam
was:

You are driving your car in a wild stormy night. You pass by a bus
station, and you see three people waiting for the bus: –

An old lady who looks as if she is about to die,

A doctor who had once saved your life,

A man/woman you have been dreaming to be with.

You can only take one passenger in your car. Which one will you
choose?

Please explain your answer.

Think about it before you continue reading.

This must be some kind of personality test. Every answer has its
reasoning.

You could pick up the old lady. She is going to die, and thus you
should save her first. You could take the doctor, because he once
saved your life. This will be the perfect chance to pay him back.
However, you could always pay the doctor back in the future, but you
may never be able to find the perfect lover once you pass this
chance.

The candidate who was eventually hired (out of 200 applicants) did
not have to explain his answer. WHAT DID HE SAY?

He simply answered: “Give the car key to the doctor. Let him take the
old lady to the hospital. I will stay and wait for the bus with the
man/woman of my dreams.”

Sometimes, we would gain more if we were able to let go of our
stubborn limitations.

    I will do the the same.it signifies that that the man is multi productive.he is good in calculation and he is a result oriented person.what he did falls to the principle of shooting 3 birds in one bullet.
