No not by posters on this board, but on a job application. I am looking for a PT job and these days many service oriented jobs use personality assessments, and if you fail the assessment you get a rejection letter regardless of how many years experience you have in the field (note I worked in retail longer before assessments). These two questions if answered honestly can get points docked off an assessment score. People are generally good--My answer Strongly disagree When I look at the world around me I have little hope for mankind.-- My answer strongly agree You see the doctrine of total depravity says that man is not good, but is totally depraved and so I would answer the question by that standard. I also have little hope for mankind since man is on his way to Hell. Mankind is doomed apart from Christ, and so I have little hope for people in the world who mostly have rejected Christ. I experience rejection everytime I go out witnessing as people these days are blinded to the gospel. I complained to the company and they are forwarding my comments to senior management. Lord willing they will take out these questions.
