What is the reaction?

Overview

The first reaction is often the same: surprise or surprise. It comes reflexively in response to the fact that you have disturbed the candidate's thought. He has expected another question or another subject and his amazement is an expression of that.

After this first surprise effect has subsided, which can only take a few fractions of a second, the applicant's follow-up reaction begins. This can now be quite different.

Positive or negative?

Overview

It is difficult to assess these responses as entirely positive or negative, since the assessment depends on the requirements of the position and the company. Our interpretation of the typical reactions that we list below for you is therefore deliberately general.

A possible reaction of the candidate is a long silence. This is often neither positive nor negative, since there is only a suggestion that the candidate was not prepared and therefore takes more time to think about a possible answer.

Is a quick response basically better?

Overview

If he has always answered very quickly, almost like shot from the gun, this gives you at least the information that the candidate was well prepared for the other questions.

The opposite reaction, a very fast response from the candidate, can be interpreted in at least two directions. The first is the possibility that the candidate was not really surprised because he was prepared for your question.

How important is this ability for the job

Overview

However, this is less likely to be the case, since classical or standardized questions are mainly asked in the majority of the applications. The second possibility of the interpretation is that the candidate is very quick-witted and quickly knows an answer to untypical questions.

In this case, it is up to you to assess whether this is a requirement that will also be useful to him in his endeavor. If so, it is a good thing that he could answer the question quickly or respond to you with something ready to go.
