Q：How many golf players in Canada are left handed?
(事先声明：这是个真实的面试问题，可不是我瞎编乱造的。为了想出这个奇怪问题，我和我的colleague可是伤透了脑筋。大部分应聘者都会想，面试者是不是在发烧，

A：
candidate #1: 若有所思的沉默了一分钟，接着很不好意思的说了句:" Sorry, I don't play golf and I don't have a clue"。(当场昏倒，想了老半天就给了这么

candidate #2: 哈哈大笑后说到“that's a very interesting question, but I'm sure no one knows the answer, so I would just say there are xxx left handed
golf players in Canada" (完全没有思考过程，把我们当傻瓜呀，气得吐血，锯掉! 锯掉!)

candidate #3: “我不知道正确的答案，但是我可以试着估计一下：加拿大总共有xxx人口，假设其中xx% 的人play golf, 那就是xxx人，再假设这些人中又有xx%是
left handed，所以 I think there are approximately xxx left handed golf players in Canada。”(嗯，很满意，有思想，准备second round吧!)

• 这个面试问题据说是microsoft的经典问题。算不上奇怪。MBA们一般都知道怎么回答。
• "microsoft的经典问题", are you serious? btw, the second candidate actually has an MBA，就是那个让我们气得吐血的那位。:-)
• 那位MBA 看来功课作的不够，应该被踢掉。我说的是serious的，我LG是做IT的，若干年前就听LG说过。我也在网上看到过，类似的题目很多的。答案不重要，重要的是分析的过程。
• Microsoft IT and finance department ask different questions. I know two main recruiters who hire people for Microsoft finance department, so I think I can say that :)
• CIBC 也早有类似面试问题
• 有时候人会想到一块儿去de
• 类似的面试问题肯定有很多，那不是重点，重点是如何去应对这样的问题，尤其是在没有心理准备的情况下!
• 说的太对了。我到是希望LZ多分享些类似的面试问题，因为这类问题往往让应试人LOST，不知面试人意图何在，如何应对 （至少我是，嘿嘿。。）。就那些传统问题，已有很多的讨论和指导了。这篇文章对我很有启发。
• I got quite some this kind of questions when I interviewed with mgmt consulting firms long time back. falcon99 is right, if you are MBA and especially if you are looking for job in consulting, these type of question is 'must' in preparation.
• 写得不错，拓宽思路。谢谢。
• Way to go, keep on!

• waiting the next...
• 好帖。很多情况下被面试人和面试人想得很不一样。记得以前在国内做面试人的时候，公司招聘有个规则“自己开过公司的人坚决不要”，之前还以为自己开过公司的人相对考虑问题周全是优点。
• Keep up the good work! I am looking forward to next chapter.
