Hr HE practicability of examinations in connection with Agency Licenses A is being discussed all over the country and has been for some time without results, and from various reasons. Most insurance agents arc thoroughly sold on the idea that their calling is a profession and not a business, and have only one attitude, ethically, when asked to submit to an examination for their fitness. Having the interests of better insurance at heart they are one with those who desire to raise the agency standards, but being constantly instructed in these higher standards by their Companies and they know that education is a fine thing, yet they feel the school room is not always the best place to test it, as witnessed by the most ridiculous pronunciamentos broadcasted in the public prints by those in the circles of higher learning. No man is so foolish as the savant when he gets running wild in the matter of questionnaires and examinations. Consider these questions as to the “sanity” of incoming aliens:
1. What is a goat after it passes the age of seven years?
2. What is a child who has eaten its father and mother?
3. What kind of an umbrella docs King George carry on a rainy day?
The correct answers to these questions arc: (1) Eight years old.
(2) An orphan. (3) A wet umbrella.
Now, my dear students, did you get 100% on that test? If you didn’t, then we have the United States immigration authorities’ word for it that you’re crazy.
We wonder as to the sanity of the professor who propounded them. “Who’s loony now?” as they used to say before the era of intelligence tests.
We trust no pedagogue will get sidetracked on any such blather in the effort to find out whether or not a man is capable of selling insurance.
Nevertheless, the most sensible of formal examinations is bound to contain pitfalls liable to throw a smart, well-equipped agent for a loss.
It is to be hoped that any examination will be conducted with due regard to the human factor.
