Vital fast thinking

2. Give me a specific example of a time when you used good judgment and logic in solving a problem. This story is about saving myself from a fire.

Useless time consumption

1. Describe a situation in which you were able to use persuasion to successfully convince someone to see things your way. That's all about using unit-tests on the frontend for documenting purpose.

Инвентаризация переживаний
