SUBJECT: Staff Aptitude Test.
DATE: March 29, 30 A.D.
Thank you for submitting the resumes of the 12 men you picked
for management positions in your new organization. All of them
have now taken our battery of tests, and we have not only run
the results through our computer but also have arranged
personal interviews for each of them with our psychologist and
It is the staff opinion that most of your nominees are lacking
in background, education and vocational aptitude for the type
of enterprise you are undertaking. They do not have the team
concept. We would recommend that you continue your search for
persons of experience in managerial ability and proven
Simon Peter is emotionally unstable and given to fits of
temper. Andrew has absolutely no qualities of leadership.
The two brothers, James and John, the sons of Zebedee, place
personal interest above company loyalty. Thomas demonstrates a
questioning attitude that would tend to undermine morale. We
feel that it is our duty to tell you that Matthew has been
blacklisted by the Greater Jerusalem Better Business Bureau.
James, the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddeus definitely have
radical leanings, and they both registered a high score on
the manic depressive scale.
One of the candidates, however, shows great potential. He is
a man of ability and resourcefulness, meets people well, has a
keen business mind and has contacts in high places. He is
highly motivated, ambitious and innovative. We recommend
Judas Iscariot as your controller and right hand man. All
other profiles are self-explanatory.
We wish you every success in your new venture.
Sincerely, Jordan Management Consultants
