    In another thread, a guy was asking how he should answer questions on a "personality survey" that was part of a job interview.
    He had been "de selected" because of his answers on the "personality survey" and wanted to know if he should have answered truthfully.

    I told him....

    A “Personality Survey”?

    In this day and age I wouldn’t be surprised if this survey was some sort of Political Correctness test.
    Or perhaps they want to be able to weed out anyone who might be some kind of “Workplace Threat”.
    Who knows…..?

    You should be able to look at the questions and tell what they are looking for.

    I don’t see this something where you need be overly concerned with the “Truth”.
    If they asked you if you were in student government in high school or if you were on the debating team in college….You need to tell the truth.

    But if they give you what they call a “Personality Survey”…… And it turns out that a “wrong” answers will send you packing……. They aren’t being honest, are they?

    If it were me, I would try to tell the truth on their “ Personality Survey”.
    But if you see any questions that look like they might be designed to trip you up, give them the answers that you think they might like.


    I thought that was a reasonable suggestion.

    So then lwingwatcher comes along trying to hijack the thread and says,

    “Kinda like twisting the facts on a cop bashing thread eh?

    Do whatever it takes to suit your agenda.....”


    Now what he is saying is BS.
    I don’t twist any facts to suit my “agenda”.

    But my question is.
    How many out there want to keep talking about bad cops right now?
    How many want to start talking about it in other people's threads?

    And as for his buddy flyby
    Here’s a line from one of his recent posts where he uses the line....

    “a child porn collector and has no perverted interest in underage children (of either sex).”

    Now I don’t care who he is talking about or what kind of joke he is making, but that kind of thing doesn’t belong in any of these discussions.
    It might even qualify for a time out.
    I’d like to find out who he was talking about?

    So who wants to keep talking about bad cops?

    How about we give it a rest for a week or so?
    And next time we keep it civil.
