I completed a psychometric evaluation for a job less than 48 hours after my son was born.

I had had maybe a combined total of 6 hours sleep on a matt on the floor of the hospital room in the last 2 days.

The test was held in an office right next to a public square where a parade was due to start sometime soon... so I had about five different pipe bands and brass bands warming up outside the window.

Needless to say I don't think I put my best foot forward. I imagine they sent to the results to the Police to let them know a maniac was on the loose and applying for project management jobs.
