hmm for a customer service interview - maybe take a stressball? You can have an immense amount of pressure put on you, but you'll never break, you'll always bounce back, and you'll never, ever stop smiling!

I would take a glass ornament. Pretty and delicate, but if you break me I with cut you a thousand times

Take nothing and say that it is ridiculous to try and describe yourself with an object.

I think the stressball is a good idea.

I used to help run assessment centres like this - the stressball sounds good. Don't take something which you could have just had with you anyway such as mobile phone/book/watch/piece of jewellery etc because the interviewers will automatically assume you just forgot and used whatever you had on you. Don't use something which doesn't answer the question such as, 'this is a picture of your family'. It needs to be an object with characteristics that you can apply to yourself and it's more to do with these characteristics than it is about the actual item. You can bring in an amazing item but if you can't talk about how it describes you then it's useless!

Good luck.

Someone I know took paracetamol to one of those. Because it's fast and effective and whenever someone's not feeling too good, it'll help them perk up again... and some other rubbish like that

I did this once, and I took my iPod because it's pretty much my life.
That was at Guide camp a few years ago, though... Not quite the same thing, is it?

Take a ruler. You're precise an flexible .In any situation you can be measured and calculating. But not too flexible that you'd break the rules. You could all so say you'll be the manager one day ie the ruler.
