"''What was a time that you were faced with social diversity and how did you deal with it?'' My answer was that I had actually read this question on an interview site and had been troubled with how I would answer it b/c I grew up in a life where diversity was minimized and that I would deal with a socially diverse person just like I would deal with any other person. I wouldn't notice their difference; I would see them as a person and deal with them like anyone else. I also got asked to talk about something that I am really good at in life. It wasn't in any certain context and it was very difficult to answer. I said that as corny as it sounds, I am a good friend and that I have proof in the fact that at the age of 27 I still have 9 girlfriends from highschool that I talk to every 2 weeks. I talked about how much energy it took to make sure that I kept in touch with them but how important that was to me. It seemed like a silly small thing, but it seemed to impress them immensely. Don't try to make up some grandiose answer. Just be real and you will come out on top. "
