Chairman: I thought every candidate on the shortlist was very impressive.
Panel member 1: Agreed. We would appoint any one of them.
Panel member 2: Indeed but I thought the last we interviewed had one outstanding quality.
Chairman: What is it that particularly struck you about him ?
Panel member 2: The ability to think on his feet. He dealt with the most difficult and unexpected questions we threw at him very coolly and intelligently.
Chairman: That's certainly true and it's not a very common quality.
