"How would you feel if I gave you a task you didn't like but made you do it anyway?"

    ... like in any and every other job except one?

    The correct answer is "bad".
    This is a trick question to check whether you are honest.
    Liars answer something like that they would still be happy to do it when it serves the project or other soft-skill-signalling bullshit.

    @Oktokolo I don't know, it depends. I don't like frontend work, but if the frontend devs were off ill and it was a critical fix I could handle? Sure, I'm happy to do that as a one off. But just being handed a task I don't like because I don't like it is just a dick move (though that's not a phrase I'd use in the interview itself...!)
