    Never heard this one, but I wouldnt be surprised if he did this in an interview for a high level executive position.

    Steve Jobs is well known to have despised his biological father.

    He was probably looking to bring on like-minded people who wouldnt let family get in the way of success....

    Pretty sure it was Marcus Aurelius who came up with that one.

    If they're asking you dumb questions like that you probably don't want to work there.

    Remember, your objective is just to get the job, put in the bare minimum effort, collect your paycheck and GTFO......
    While it's not the case across all industries (certainly small, privately owned businesses have the most freedom), if it's a job funded by Corporate America, it's safe to assume the following list are acceptable hobbies:
    Painting
    Drawing
    Running
    Mountain biking
    Sailing/paddling
    Photography
    Salsa or ballroom dancing
    Symphony/opera
    Golf
    Tennis
    Raquetball

    Never discuss or disclose interest in any of these categories:
    1) blood sports (MMA, boxing)
    2) dirt sports (ATVs, rodeos, paintball)
    3) loud noise (heavy metal, motorsports, firearms)

    If there's anything I learned in Corporate America, it's that blood, dirt and loud noise is not "suitable" for uptight Corporate America.

    Anytime I'm in a Corporate America meeting and people ask me for my hobbies or interests, I always say " I'm a nature lover and an animal lover. I like to spend time outdoors in nature and admire the trees and birds. " and leave it at that.

    Playing work politics is just a word/ image game. It's expected of everyone to "play the game" to get the paycheck.
