First, decisions haven't been made about the job yet, we don't know for sure I didn't get it.

Second, I won't have a "boss," I'll have an "advisor."

Third, I'd say no, and for him or her to never call me late at night again.
And that required no imagination. First of all you had to reason why you wouldn't do over time, then you had to make a decision. That question is no different from the random crap they throw at you in interviews. Although usually it would be asked as how do you feel about overtime? Evening shifts etc. How would you have responded to the question if it came From your potential employer? I mean the first question I asked?

I think the point is do they want to employ a robot or a person who can think. If they wanted a robot surely they could just build one this is NASA. You seem to be making out this is a job a trained chimp could do. NASA are good at that stuff too, or were. :smile:

Advisor/Boss whatever everyone has someone who has authority over them with the exception of the company owners or the government.

Ok well I'm no longer saying anything about your chances of getting the job I'm just saying you answered the question badly.

This is probably the one I'd hire from what I've heard so far, honestly. Stereotype being you have an excellent work ethic when it comes to the monotonous tasks that nobody else around the lab can focus long enough to keep up on.

The only problem is of course how severe is it and can you actually leave the house most days? :smile:

OCD: :rofl: But can you carry on a conversation on the phone or type anything useful on your keyboard before giving into the overwhelming urge to sanitize it? (or lick it? :yuck:)

That's more OCC obsesseive cleanliness compulsive. There are people who are more obsessed with patterns and superstitions who don't really get all that bothered by germs and people who's only problem seems to be with sanitation, and then there are people who are bothered by everything that is out of their comfort zone. Kind of a spectrum.

All good professors should have a couch in their lab so that when their crazy grad students finally get there, it's easier for them to stay there for several days in a row. Extended catch and release program.

Intolerant of arbitrary and pointless restrictions.

Think about it ...
Amen!
