Interesting, the stuff I read about interviews being far less useful than is believed, actually suggested exactly that method! Put it down on paper - pros and cons, or however is best, but basically, it helps cut out the unconscious mind, and maintains some objectivity and rationality!One time after interviewing several people for a job my boss and I had settled on two applicants but we couldn't decide between them. We had a few beers about it and I suggested we write out a list of their different pros and cons.
When it was put down on paper the difference between the two was chalk and cheese and there really was only one viable candidate.
Same idea as people recommend for making many decisions of all sorts - write down the important aspects. Then look again at what's sitting there -screaming at you! This is the one!
