To bypass socially desirable behavior

Overview

Social desirable behavior can only be shown if the candidate knows what answer you want to hear from him as an interviewer. Then he can adapt it to your taste. In addition, the answers to classical questions can be found in a variety of applicants' advisors.

And a well-prepared candidate does that too. Good applicants prepare themselves in detail for their application. They know their strengths, weaknesses, goals and abilities and they will present them to you in the best possible way.

Example: Socially desired responses to teamwork

Overview

Teamwork is a commonly required skill in job descriptions. Nevertheless, it is seldom the case that a candidate should be able to work exclusively in a team. On the contrary, in addition to the good teamwork, he should also have an independent way of working.

Contestants know that you're good at not just a lone fighter or an exclusive team player Company arrive. For this reason, answers such as:

  • "Of course I enjoy working in a team. There you can exchange ideas with colleagues and quickly find a solution together. Many heads think more and faster than an individual. But I do not have to work in a team. I also put my performance on my own. "
  • "I can work independently very well. For longer-term tasks, I'm planning what I work when. I then work it off consistently. Of course, it is often the case that tasks are too big to handle on their own. Then I like to work in a team with others, because you can share the tasks and all can work well. "
  • "I would call myself a team player. I think it's important that you also learn from colleagues and use all the experience and the total energy of a team to achieve the best possible result. Sometimes, however, it does not make sense to work in a team, for example when the task is not big enough to keep a whole team busy. Then I can do the job well for myself. And that too has its advantages. I like a balanced mix of teamwork and individual work. "
