Re: Interviewing someone for a job...

A good question that I always like to ask is to "Tell me your three biggest faults or failures that have happened to you, and how you overcame them."

If the person isn't ready for it (and it usually gets them off guard, as one usually wants to praise yourself in an interview, not talk about problems you've had)... It'll show if they can think "on their feet", as well as adapt and overcome obstacles.

FWIW, very few interviewees get through all three (in my experience).
