Found this gem today while looking through confluence.

Can the candidate use Slack?
Ask follow up questions if missed anything.
Ask the questions that tell a lot about someone without directly asking it (i.e. Have you ever met someone famous? (Telling what the candidate values in life) What are your hobbies? (Telling if candidate has a work life balance). If you were a crayon, what color would you be and why? (Highlights prominent aspects of candidate’s personality) Please don’t just use these, be creative.)

A crayon???? Das when I hang up

    Work life balance, fair enough. Can piss right off with the others. Meeting someone famous doesn't tell you what the candidate values - if I met Jimmy Saville once, that certainly doesn't mean I'm into the same things as him...

    With the celebrity and crayon hobby psychologist bullshit, my answer would be: "Yeah, so let's return to job related questions. Can you please walk me through your development process and roles?"
