Imagine in the middle of a job interview being asked the following question: “You are shrunk to the height of a nickel and thrown into a blender. Your mass is reduced, so your density is the same as usual. The blades start moving in 60 seconds. What do you do?” For some years now, corporations like Google, Microsoft and even Walmart have begun to ask applicants tough thought problems and odd problems meant to showcase how the applicant creatively solves problems. How hard are these questions?
