Well, that's an unfair question because in order to answer it, I would have to acknowledge that you shouldn't hire me. The purpose of this discussion is to determine WHETHER you should hire me; not WHY you shouldn't. Why did you ask me that question?

I am a strong, opinionated executive. I have a unique broad skill set across all technology verticals. I can debate all technologies. If you think your team is not diverted in their knowledge, then they will be intimidated by me. I challenge the status quo and if this is not your culture, then you shouldn't hire me.
