Behavioral: what is the similarity between a milk carton

  and a plane seat

Interview Answer

4 Answers


I believe the answer to that question demonstrate a reasoning ability, and thought process. Looking at the two cases starting with a plane seat; plane seats are meant for comfort and support. Comfort in the sense as to soothe uneasiness in the travel. Support: to hold you in place, aligning to the motion of the plane.

Second, a milk carton has more to do with support than comfort because milk are inanimate. I wouldn't think milk carton is made of the same material as plane seat because of the calculated risk involved, and value of the product: human life versus milk content.

So, it has more to do with support; so that both don't fall out of place.
