I have been put in the position of having to choose between 3 candidates for an important post. I have read their statements, pondered and pondered and come to the conclusion that any one of the three could do a good job - not that they are all identical but each would bring their own particular strengths to the task. Then I discussed this dilemma with colleagues only to find that they were similarly perplexed. Although I know all three, one of these candidates is a personal friend and being unable to choose otherwise I have plumped for my friend. Now I am concerned that this, call it loyalty, was not the best reason to swing my choice, but on the other hand I feel I may have applied stricter criteria in judging my friend than the others. The last time I was stuck with this dilemma was when my pal's DGD was obviously the best in the fancy dress parade
So am I being unreasonable in choosing my friend over others? or am I just overthinking the whole issue?
