4: Your article is quite helpful to know the very inner meaning of such trickiest questions. I think it is necessary ( in these days of global financial crisis), to find a right employee for their organisation as it is linked with their company's reputation as well growth.
I think, if such trickiest questions are posed by the interviewer one must be tactful to answer them. For example if they ask me the first question that how will you manage to prepare for your interview while you work. I will first of all ask them whether is it for a next interview related to my promotion in your concern.

Most of the times the trickiest questions are posed to judge or find out your real 'self'. Meaning, that whether you are determined to work both consciously and sub-consciously.
I also think that one must know about psychology of interviewer before they appear interviews.
Thing is that how many of us really well versed with our self-psychology and its working?
