American Lawyer: Putting Law Firm Hires to the Test

The article itself is whatever, interesting I guess.

I thought this chart was pretty funny though. I'd have gotten 4/5 of the questions "wrong."

Because who needs teamwork, hardwork, humility, and a little bit of creativity/flexibility?

seems like a test specially designed to ensure that law firms are staffed exclusively by sociopaths

I think the vacation one is right on if they had included something about status in it.

lol this is the worst test ever. There is literally no way any of these questions correlate to the traits they're seeking. This looks like a test some partners designed instead of hiring experts or paying for a Myers-Briggs subscription.

The only way I think this would be useful in law firm hiring is if the interviewer were to go over a few of your answers with you to see if you're willing to litigate, tactfully and without losing your composure, the fact that the assessment is garbage.

They've done a good job of that without this test. They're obviously upset some normies slipped through the cracks.
