Attitude-based hiring policy

I just read this entry of Mark’s and was delighted by the following parable that was contained within it:

There are two men who separately ask an old-timer what the people are like in a town that they’re moving to. "What were the people like in the town you came from?" the codger asks. One says that they were mean and unfriendly. "Sounds about like the people who live here," is the reply. The other says that he came from a town of wonderful, helpful citizens. "Sounds about like the people who live here," is again the response.

Sounds like a good question to include in any recruitment interview to me!
