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. Why should we not hire you?

  2. Please share an example of a time you had a problem working with someone. What made them challenging to work with? What steps did you take to resolve the issues?

  3. What do you need to be motivated and successful in your job?

  4. What is your greatest work failure? What did you learn from it? What would you do differently now?

  5. Tell me about a time when there was a significant change in your work environment. What effect did this change have on your work?

  6. What is your greatest weakness? What do you do to overcome it?

  7. How do you feel when someone interrupts you while you are in the middle of an important task?
