1- Why does a job interview hold so much weight in hiring? Vision, creativity, & passion for the job should gauge far more. The previous question is why we have so many poor administrators in most districts. We get suckered by the show & the loud personality.
2- What is so important about 'winning'?
In every case, there must be a complete understanding and grasp of the situation. Sometimes, no one wins or loses. I, personally, believe that the Japanese ideal of 'tie' is by far more honorable.
3- Why do people lie in the face of true honesty? IMO people lie to perpetuate the entertainment. We're under this vast understanding that people care what we do; as if we live in a reality TV show.
