Oh how wonderful those experiences at assemblies and "schools" are - not.
At times it seemed as if these "experiences" were scripted. Well, they are not. The speaker gets criteria in the outline regarding what the experience or interview has to be about. Then he has to ask around and find someone who fits it or is pretty close. The whole thing is prepared and sometimes the experiences are not exactly true but rather embellishments to make a point, etc.
I remember participating once and the interview was about leading a "simple life" The elder with the assignment guided me in what to say. How this simple life was good and how it allowed me to regular pioneer, etc. All the stuff we always hear. When in reality, I had just purchased my own house and was driving a brand new car. Why I ever really went along with that deceit, I do not know.
Did anyone ever have this sort of participation as an interviewee or interviewer? Comments?
