Would you lie for the company?
This question makes you dangle between loyalty and integrity. This is what the interviewer(s) wanted to do. But, you need to outsmart the. Give them a diplomatic answer and consider the following points:
1. Give them a reply in affirmation. Follow your ‘yes’ with a clause. The clause shall be something like this - If my ‘lie’ shall have a positive impact on the company and if it shall be useful and helpful for many people, then I will lie.
2. Keep an example ready to make clear what you mean by your clause. Beware, your example shall not be unethical.
Now, it’s time for 'participation':
*Assume that you are sitting in the interview room now.
*You have been asked to ‘Would you lie for the company’. Go ahead; give it a try on how to answer the same. Post your own answers and get them reviewed .
