If you admit to having conflicts then you fail. If you don't have conflicts then you didn't answer the question and you fail. It's the interview equivalent of would you rather be shot or stabbed.
Being an umpire would be a great result if that question came up though due to the nature of the job, but in most work environments, if you have conflict you did something wrong.
Not quite true...there are plenty of jobs where you will have conflict without it having been a mistake on your part.
