It was NSA. Not FBI. The message is that you'd better be an average
middle of the road kind of person. Don't be passionate aboout anything.
A sense of humor is not a plus. Don't be creative. Don't count on getting
the job if it requires security clearance. I think you need to be
tolerant of crushing bureaucracy too.
