Congratulations! You’ve received a completed IdealTraits personality assessment from a candidate. They have shown interest in the role and have taken the steps to move forward by investing their time and energy.

You can create an interview based on the assessment results. This allows you to dig deeper to get to know your candidate better to determine if the role fits.

To ensure you aren’t falling into the trap of asking illegal questions or violating EEOC, read this article in our help center.

Below are questions to ask based on their personality result:


  1. Tell me when you struggled to meet a goal/quota/deadline. What did you do?

  2. What role do you typically take in a group? Why?

  3. This role requires you to follow up on leads. You would be doing outbound calling for over half of the day. What experience do you have with that?

  4. Do you prefer inside sales or outside sales? Why?

  5. What skill or expertise do you feel you are still missing as a sales professional?

  6. Can you describe a time when you were dealing with an incredibly challenging workload? How did you handle it? Did you ask for help? Did you receive it?

  7. When is the right time to ask for a referral?
