Why did you leave your last job?

See the source image

There are just some questions that do not have a clear reason or even a single response such as

Why did the Chicken cross the Road?

What kind of coffee was served on the Titanic?

Why are there so many Smiths in the phone book?

These are a number of questions that do not have a right or wrong answer. We tailor them to our current thoughts and self awareness.

I had a job interview yesterday and I was asked a lot of open ended questions but  I got stalled on this one. I toyed in the back of my head of what to say but I ultimately just told her what happened and left her to interpret it. I knew the reason why was false (I have proof) but I just wanted to be honest.

As we go through life we are asked these types of questions. We don’t always know the correct answer but what is the correct answer?

Is the correct answer what they want to hear? or Is the correct answer the truth?

More often than not it should always be the truth. But  does the other person always want to hear the truth? Or are there situations when you may need to tell a white lie in order to answer it to please them? Or situations when the reason is not true?
