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. When prospecting, how do you build rapport quickly?

  2. A prospective customer wants you to bend the rules and then you can secure the sale. What do you do?

  3. Describe a time when you went against an established process. What happened? How did it impact the team/workflow/your job?

  4. What was your most recent team experience like?

  5. Which of your skills need more improvement as a salesperson?

  6. Tell me about a time you needed to set boundaries with someone (co-worker, customer) Why did you need to set them and what were they?

  7. How do you stay motivated to keep making sales calls when you continue hearing “no” from prospects?
