Should I email a better answer to an interview question?

Yesterday I had an internal interview for a job I really want. I answered most of the questions just fine but one of them, "name a time when something at work depended on you and what did you do?", I bombed for some reason. Now I have a great answer and am thinking of emailing the three people in the interview panel with a revised answer, but I'm not sure whether this would be appropriate. [more inside]

Job Interview Filter: "What was the funniest thing that ever happened to you at work?" What kind of answer is my potential employer looking for?

I'm completing a preliminary job interview form, and one of the questions asked is to describe the funniest situation that's ever happened at work. I know a lot of the tricks of these type of questions (when asked about your weaknesses, also explain how you compensate; when asked about your worst boss, briefly explain how you successfully managed the situation; etc.), but this one is stumping me.

Tell me about yourself

Following from this question, how do you approach and answer the classic interview questions? I am looking for specific examples / tactics around questions like: Tell me about yourself? How do you deal with ambiguity? How did you manage a difficult personality? How do you deal with competing priorities? How do you influence people? Any of the examples in the aforementioned thread are fair game. I am interested in both your specific answers but also your general approach / goal in answering the question. Personal anecdotes a plus!

Getting mental balance for job interview/outcome

In a whirlwind of a week and a half, I submitted a resume, got a phone interview, and a job interview scheduled for Monday so have been cramming. My question though is on handling outcome. I am so anxious that I need to somehow convince myself that it doesn't matter what happens. There are pros and cons for uprooting if I get the job and the same if I stay at my current job. Pay is the same, just be starting over, but would be near my family. Any Jedi mind tricks when things are uncertain?
