Who Would You Hire?

I read a quote from Mark Zuckerberg this morning.  When asked what he looks for when hiring a prospective employee, the brainchild responded, "I will only hire someone to work directly for me if I would work for that person."  Words of wisdom from a Millennial genius.

Is there truth to... Great minds think alike?  Should we surround ourselves with brilliance?  People often say that if you're the smartest person in the room, you're in the wrong room.  My childhood mentor used to tell me that "Iron sharpens iron."  Nuggets of truth.

In a recent MLS class, a group of newbie Realtors fired off questions in usual fashion, which I had no trouble answering.  But then, I was hit with a few zingers that I hadn't encountered before.  In that moment, I recognized some brilliant souls in the room. 

The brave ones weren't afraid to ask questions about topics they knew nothing about.  The others sat quietly and observed.  Who would you hire?
