Heh.  Nice of them to put it in writing.  That's pretty much what an interview is for isn't it?  To see if you have the right personality for the workplace?  They can't really check your qualifications right there, can they?
Hey, I'm not judging.  I just like to shoot straight.  I'm a man of science.
