I believe that, in part, application questions like these are to assist in weeding out applicants before the interview process. I mean, if you don't have the sense to keep stuff like that personal and you actually admit to it, then it could be an indicator of how you would handle business situations. A good rule of thumb is to put yourself into the shoes of the hiring entity and then answer the questions in a manner that is consistent with what they would be looking for. Worst case scenario is you still don't get the job; however, providing an affirmative response to those questions is going to guarantee you don't get the job.

Surely those asking the questions know that. No one in their right mind would answer in the affirmitive.
I suspect the reason the questions are there is because if you answer "No" and they do a background check and discover you actually have been a member of said groups, they've just nailed you for lying on your application, which is grounds for termination.

That was just a couple of the questions I had to answer. There were ones that started in on my marriage, ones that asked for the name, address, phone, and occupation of every brother, sister, brother & sister-inlaws. I don’t mind answering them because I have nothing to hide but it is some serious personal info.edit on 12/5/10 by xyankee because: (no reason given)
