How to select the right person for the right job

Taken from some job site haha!

Put one hundred bricks in a ten by ten rectangle on the floor of a closed room with an open window. Then send two candidates into the room and close the door.

Leave them undisturbed in the room for two hours, then go back into the room to analyse the situation.
If they are counting the bricks, assign them to the Accounts Department.
If they are recounting them, assign them to Auditing.
If they have messed up the whole place with the bricks, assign them to Engineering.
If they are arranging the bricks in some strange order, assign them to Planning.
If they are throwing the bricks at each other, assign them to Operations.
If they are sleeping, assign them to Security.
If they have broken the bricks into pieces, assign them to MIS / Information Technology.
If they are sitting idle, assign them to HR.
If they say they have tried different combinations, but few bricks have been moved, assign them to Sales.
If they have already left for the day, assign them to Marketing.
If they are staring out of the open window, assign them to Strategic Planning.
If they have thrown all the bricks out the window, assign them to Business Process Re-engineering.
And then last but not least, if they are gossiping with each other and not a single brick has been moved, congratulate them and assign them to Senior Management.
