I assume the idea of doing this comes from "Management consultants", and here is how it really works:
The questions are all designed to find out your state of mind on (your own internal feelings on):Your level of irrational emotional attachment to the company: Will you do it for them because they love you?
The other twist to this is that you may be promised an amount of money if you stay with the company till some date. This promise will not be in writing, you will not get your money, and later on you will have to take the company to court if you want to get your money.
Naturally, the more compliant you appear to be, the more you will be complied. The people who say they won't hang around will be terminated, the compliant ones will be taken advantage of till they have outlived their usefullness.
In the case I was involved in, a mid-level mananger, who went around daily brow-beating his staff to pledge to stay (a matter of honor, he said) till no longer needed, was the first to get another job.
My suggestion to anyone put into this kind of position is to say "Oh yes please, two bags full sir" and look for another job immediately without the slightest pang of concience. With luck you will start another job just after the non-compliant workers have been let go.
