I agree with some of the posters in there - one of these days they really need to come up with "The 50 Stupidest Questions Asked By Interviewers." A lot of the dumb answers come from questions that the interviewer has no business asking, like "How old are you" (age discrimination), "If you were a fruit, what kind of fruit would you be, and how does that reflect your work ethic?" (WTF? Not only is this a bomb shell but what does that have to do with anything?) or "Which came first - the chicken or the egg?" (What the hell does that have to do with the job?).
However, I did like this response as to how the online gaming answer could be improved upon:
About using a Video Game as a reference to leadership skills:
The trick is not to call it a Video Game, but to still refer to it. You don't "play a video game and run the whole show!" you have "an extracurricular activity where you lead large groups of individuals and delegate tasks in order to achieve a common goal, on a regular basis". Of course, saying it in this way could be anything from WoW to an orgy to some kind of military operation. It's all about wording. So be tricky. You aren't a video game player, you're an interactive-media connoisseur; you aren't leading WoW raids, you're delegating tasks to capable individuals to reach a common goal for the group's profit.
I have to remember this one...
Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice? Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.
