Not quite related, but I was once asked during an interview "What do you think would make you more well qualified for this job than the other candidates"? My reply: "errrr, ummmmm, errrrr, I have not met the other candidates, so I cannot comment on their abilities". His reply: "Well we have three candidates with impressive resumes that have graduated from top universities." My reply: "Why do you need my help in selecting a candidate? I presume you are perfectly capable of selecting the candidate you feel is best suited to this position." His reply: "I do not need your help, but I do want to know if you feel you are as capable as the other candidates graduating from top universities?" My reply: "I have absolutely no idea, nor do I care if I am more or less capable than them. I did not fly 2000 miles to talk about other candidates." His reply: "Well, this position requires a candidate with a high intellectual capacity and ability to operate under pressure." My reply: "Well then, your interview process can be made very simple. Make us all sit IQ tests, highest score gets the job." Interview did not last long, he started complaining about my resume and the university I got my first degree from was not as good as Ivy League (it was from Imperial College London), I got up and said to him I did not fly all this way to talk about bullshit - either we talk business or I leave. He said, well leave then. I left ... I did not get the job!
