Agent Selection Inside the CIA
A few months ago, there was an opening with the CIA for an assassin.
These highly classified positions are hard to fill, and there's a lot of
testing and background checks involved before you can even be considered for
After sending some applicants through the background checks, training and
testing, they narrowed the possible choices down to 2 men and a woman, but
only one position was available. The day came for the final test to see
which person would get the extremely secretive job. The CIA men
administering the test took one of the men to a large metal door and handed
him a gun. "We must know that you will follow your instructions no matter
what the circumstances", they explained. "Inside this room, you will find
your wife sitting in a chair. Take this gun and kill her."
The man got a shocked look on his face and said "You can't be serious! I
could never shoot my own wife!" "Well", says the CIA man, "you're definitely
not the right man for this job then."
So they bring the second man to the same door and hand him a gun. "We must
know that you will follow instructions no matter what the circumstances",
they explained to the second man. "Inside you will find your wife sitting in
a chair. Take this gun and kill her."
The second man looked a bit shocked, but nevertheless took the gun and went
into the room. All was quiet for about 5 minutes, then the door opened. The
man came out of the room with tears in his eyes. "I tried to shoot her. I
just couldn't pull the trigger and shoot my wife. I guess I'm not the right
man for the job." "No," the CIA man replied, "You don't have what it takes.
Take your wife and go home."
Now they're down to the woman left to test. Again they lead her to the same
door to the same room and hand her the same gun. "We must be sure that you
will follow instructions no matter what the circumstances, this is your
final test. Inside you will find your husband sitting in a chair. Take this
gun and kill him."
The woman took the gun and opened the door. Before the door even closed all
the way, the CIA heard the gun start firing. One shot after another for 13
shots. Then all hell broke loose in the room. They heard screaming,
crashing, banging on the walls. This went on for several minutes, then all
went quiet. The door opened slowly, and there stood the woman. She wiped the
sweat from her brow and said, "You guys didn't tell me the gun was loaded
with blanks! I had to beat him to death with the chair!"

-if you have to ask get out of the way-
Have you ever been stopped by a traffic cop and, while he was
writing a ticket or giving you a warning, you got the feeling that
he would just love to yank you out of the car, right through the
window, and smash your face into the front fender?...
