There is this question that shows up from time to time in employment interviews. One of those ‘formula’ questions that are asked by HR people so out of touch with their humanity they are not able to judge character by talking to somebody. The question is: “If you were an animal, what would you be?” In one interview I answered that I would be a North American house cat, because there is probably no existence more comfortable. I was surprised when I got the job, I thought immediately after my truthful answer – who would hire somebody who only wants comfort?
