Considering that one of the tests was to lift Madame Blavatsky without the aid of a derrick failure was usually pre-ordained.

I don't know which exactly they were but I understood that a candidate 
was tested during the process of theosophical work. Most of those who 
proved to be failures finally openly condemned H.P. Blavatsky, so 
their failure became obvious to all.
Funny enough that one of them is that author whom I would recommend. 
It was M. Chatterjee who more than others wrote about qualifications 
for discipleship in early years of the Theosophical Society.
