Tricky interview question(s) – Can you give us a reason someone may not like working with you?

Interview question(s)that are designed to trick you. ( CAN YOU GIVE US A REASON SOMEONE MAY NOT LIKE WORKING WITH YOU? )….Why do they ask this? What makes it tricky? What response are they looking for?

Why do they ask this? Prospective bosses want to know if there are any glaring personality issues, and what better way than to go direct to the source? “They figure that the worst that can happen is you will lie, and they may feel they’re still adept at detecting mistruths,” Taylor says. “The negative tone of the question is bound to test the mettle of even the most seasoned business professionals.”

What makes it tricky? You can easily shoot yourself in the foot with this question. If you flip and say, “I can’t think of a reason anyone wouldn’t like working with me,” you’re subtly insulting the interviewer by trivializing the question. So you have to frame the question in a way that gets at the intent without being self-effacing. “Hiring managers are not seeking job candidates who have self-pity,” she says.

What response are they looking for? You don’t want to say, “Well I’m not always the easiest person to be around, particularly when under deadlines. I sometimes lose my temper too easily.” You might as well pack up and look for the nearest exit. “Conversely, you can lead with the positive and go from there: ‘Generally I’ve been fortunate to have great relationships at all my jobs. The only times I have been disliked — and it was temporary — was when I needed to challenge my staff to perform better. Sometimes I feel we must make unpopular decisions that are for the larger good of the company,'” Taylor suggests.
