Dude, Kwame lost because of the final assignment.
Hiring decision "from the gut" is what everyone does. If you have 2 candidates that are both qualified from experience, training, and skills. You then look to the soft side of things. ie. "Do I want to work with this guy/girl on a regular basis" and try to judge the best fit into your organization. You get the person in front of enough people that he/she will interact with and ask them to rank the candidate.
Interpersonal skills count for a lot
