6 Off-beat Questions to test your leaders #6 – Luck or Duck?

Question 6: “On a scale of 1 to 10, how lucky are you?”

This is a question which can test a person’s personality in a deliciously clichéd way. Be prepared to get standard blockers like “I don’t believe in luck etc”; persist on getting a number. If they say ’10,’ things have likely come too easy–they may not be able to read situations very well. If they say a ‘2,’ it’s a likely sign of someone who consider themselves a ‘misunderstood genius.’ When it lands closer to a 7, there’s a sense that the candidate has a healthy balance of appreciation for their good fortune and an equal ability to work hard.”
