How to get honest answers

Overview

If the candidate does not know which response to you to approve, you make it difficult for him to behave socially desirable.

You can then assume that his answer is more honest. He can still appreciate what behavior or response you would like to see / hear, but he just does not know for sure.

How does the candidate answer?

Overview

The surprising questions you ask are not primarily related to the content of the reply, but to how the candidate answers them. So the focus is on the response of the candidate and your assessment of this response.

Therefore, you may also ask questions that are not related to the direct requirements of the position to be assigned. When you ask questions of your profession, make sure that you avoid the classic questions on the respective topics.

Questions without Konext

Overview

Questions can be surprising for an applicant for different reasons. Typically, it surprises applicants to ask questions that are completely out of context.

For example, if you change the topic abruptly and ask a question that does not match the original subject matter. Then the candidate has to adjust himself first.

What to look for in the applicant

Overview

Pay particular attention to the following:

  • How long does it take to change the subject?
  • Is he irritated about your quick change between topics?
  • Is he trying to get back to the original subject?

All these things give you information about the flexibility of the applicant and his adaptability to changing requirements. How quickly can he really jump around and concentrate on a new topic and concentrate?
