    If you have ever interviewed for a job as either the interviewer or the interviewee, you may have come across this statement. You can also see it in the film “The Wolf of Wall Street”.

    Assume you are the managing director or sales manager of your company and you want to test the sales ability of your sales people at the next meeting. Take a pen from your pocket and ask one of them to sell it to you. I would be surprised if any of them will be able to sell it to you. If one can’t do it, move to the next and the next. Move fast and they have to think fast.
