During a job interview, employers may ask a few strange interview questions to keep the mood light. Funny interview questions not only showcase the candidates’ sense of humor, but also assess their ability to think on their feet.
 
So, if you are a candidate wishing to fare well in an interview, read the following questions and their answers carefully! These are the top five unusual job interview questions, but this list is by no means exhaustive. There are several other uncommon interview questions you may be asked. These strange questions include:
 
1. Why do you think you were born?
Remember: Such funny interview questions, though they might appear simple, are asked to test your understanding of your job.
Suggested answer:
I am here to fulfill a purpose that life has set for me. The purpose is to contribute as best I can to my job and the world with my skills and talents.
 
2.Who is your first love?
Remember:
Such irrelevant and weird questions are asked to test your passion for work.
Suggested answer:
Preferably, I have always chosen work and career over love as that is what helps me succeed at a job.

3. Why are you called <your name>, and not Michael Jackson?
Remember:
Such funny interview questions test your understanding of convention.
Suggested answer:
I have always been interested in religion, science, technology, and research; hence my parents called me by this name. However, I love thinking out of the box, and I would not mind being called Michael Jackson!

4. How many times do you lie in a day?
Remember:
Such uncommon interview questions test how trustworthy you are. The trap is to see how truthful you are. If you say, “I never lie,” you have failed in answering the question!
Suggested answer:
I lie only when I know it is good for somebody. For instance, if I know that the truth can get my subordinate fired, I would not mind lying to save him.

5. Who is God? Why do people believe in God?
Remember:
Such uncommon interview questions are asked to test how you deal with theoretical questions in the workplace.
Suggested answer:
God is a friend in need. People believe in God because prayers keep them calm and cool at work. Prayers help people feel secure.

These are some of the unusual interview questions employers ask candidates. A point to remember is that these weird interview questions are not asked to make a fool out of you, but instead, to test your patience and simplicity when answering them.
 
Moreover, funny interview questions make a candidate feel light-hearted and they encourage fun. These strange interview questions highlight the fact that the company encourages you to be your natural self, free from pretense.
