Nothing else like it

If you could change anything, what would you most like to change?

(use the comment button below to answer)

This is a question I use in interviews. I have been hiring people for 25 years, and this one question gives me more insight than any other question. Go with your first answer and dont let other peoples responses sway you.

Stop, breathe... exhale... relax...
Take a moment to find your answer.

Take another deep breath, and type in your first thought.

Do you mean about oneself, or about the world?

If I could change anything, I would become more patient, or perhaps I should say tolerant of people with whom I disagree, especially those people I care most about.

The question is open ended, so I cant tell you if it means you or the world. You will have to answer in your own way, with whatever you feel is the best answer for you....

Why do you think asking this question is useful in doing interviews?

I would change myself, since this is the only realistic thing I can change. I would make myself limit the time I spend on the internet, and spend more time being productive. I have a book to finish, or rather update for the 2005 seventh edition, and I consistantly find myself drawn to the Hypno site, or Hypno related reading or listening. Blog? sounds like "Blah-bla-bla." What is BLOG? Nice Q & A type discussion though. Lets people express their thoughts. "Change myself," that's my final answer. Now, what do I win?

I'd like to be more perceptive (broader scope and greater clarity of percetpion) and more skillful in interpreting what I perceive. That is, I'd like to see better and know better what I'm seeing---from many points of view.

I wouldn't change a thing, ..... everything is perfect just the way that it is.....

I would like to change the sound of my voice. Because of the pitch and lack of volume I'm readily ignored or overlooked. My good ideas are frequently either missed or attribuited to someone else. It's very frustrating!

right this moment I would change 'not knowing' into 'knowing how to' record/create my own audio CD'S/mp3's etc
why do I want to do this?
to create a passive income while raising consciousness

I would reverse any physical/sexual abuse any child has ever experienced.

Or, I would change the fact that I could only change one thing, thus allowing me to change much more.

I would like to be in charge of my mind and help others to do the same.
