Personality question: what kind of animal are you?

Some interview questions seem ridiculous and impossible to answer. Many of these crazy sounding questions are personality questions and if you recognize a personality question, you can actually forget about trying to find the right answer and just relax – let your personality show.

what kind of animal are you?

There’s no right answer (but there are wrong answers) so you let the interviewer get to know you and hopefully like you.

I’m definitely a dog. I don’t know why, but dogs just love me. They really treat me like one of their own.

Now if the interviewer is a dog person, we now have something in common. That’s a very good thing because people like people they have things in common with.

The one thing you need to avoid is negative association. You don’t want to be associated with something the interviewer hates so avoid spiders and mosquitoes because most people don’t like them.

if you could have dinner with anyone, who would it be?
