Most often the interview gives more clues about the writer than about the responder.

The problem here is not the person who takes the interview, nor is it even the idea that some questions might have right and wrong answers (which I think is fine-- why not be pointed about something as important as marriage). The problem is the sort of response. Even if someone gave all the wrong answers to my interview, I would simply say very cheerfully, "Thanks for taking the time for answering my questions-- I really appreciate it. I will add you to my prayer list." If the person said anything at all positive, I would focus on that. Tact is a positive quality.

My questions are for entertainment interest only.. I would never eliminate someone for the answers they give. There's lots more important reasons than my silly little test.

At which point you responded with, "Maybe you'd like to give me private tutoring so I can ace it next time?" Battling eyelashes Battling eyelashes Battling eyelashes

But I did reply:


Hi _________ -- I may not have answered your interview questions as you would, but I answered them right as I would! Add more questions and there might be a meeting of our minds! o.O

But do you make your interview with the idea that only certain answers are 'right' and others are 'wrong'? I made mine to find out about the taker, not try to find a twin! Please tell me how you think about the questions and answers in your and others' interviews!

Hi Rachel! I took one interview and all the questions really needed explanation so I followed it up with an email, we had a lovely little exchange but I knew and so did he that we didn't fit as a match, he's wanting to start a family etc and I am pretty much past the baby stage physically. But, we had a really nice little talk and wished each other well.

I set up my interview with mostly the basic questions but I don't like them because they are really open ended discussion starting questions but the answers are fairly set. I only have one question on mine that they can get wrong -- How do you like your steak cooked. Anything above a medium/medium rare is just plain wrong :-)) and I'd never be able to cook him a steak like that, my entire being would rebel. :-)) I am of course just kidding well mostly, if he wanted a charbroiled steak he'd have to burn it himself.

And, I think only one or two people have even responded to my interview questions but it would be nice discussion starters. That might even be better than the interview, maybe a list of discussion starters that someone interested in your profile could choose one or two and write a little impromptu essay or share their ideas.

Fun question actually :-) Lauren

I agree that because the possible answers are so limiting, the answers must be taken with a grain of salt. At best, I hope that the answers, when taken in their totality, will yield at least the soft silhouette of the person who took my interview. While I wrote my interview in the spirit of levity it is still possible to at least learn a little about the direction of the other person's priorities, intrests, likes and dislikes. I just wish more people would take it as I enjoy seeing their answers. Besides, I figure if they really couldn't see themselves in any of my offered choices; they can always drop me a note with their preferred answer. wink
