Elon Musk's famous interview question

When Elon Musk interviews someone for a job at Tesla or SpaceX, he'll probably ask you: "You're standing on the surface of the Earth. You walk one mile south, one mile west and one mile north. You end up exactly where you started. Where are you?"

Most people correctly state the North Pole, But then Musk will ask where else it could be. Few can find another possibility, which is somewhere close to the South Pole, where, if you walk one mile south, the circumference of the Earth becomes one mile.

Hard interview questions

  • The hardest question is, "How many gas stations are there in the United States?" Interviewers want to see how you think more than if you get the correct answer.
  • "You have one minute to persuade me to buy this pen." Here the interviewer wants to see how well you execute basic sales tactics.
  • "Where do you see yourself in five years?" The interviewer wants to see your commitment to the company and what your ambition is.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug
