Read the Interviewer

Follow this link to read a very interesting post on how job interviews are shaped by the personality of the interviewer.  The author, Anthony Balderama, gives some good advice about how to deal with different personality types.

I found this post very interesting, but tricky.  What if you misread the interviewer’s personality type?  Should you focus on this factor more than making your strongest presentation?  My advice is to start and end every interview by listening.  If you’re listening well, Mr. Balderama’s advice will help.  If not, the interview probably won’t go well even if you guess at the interviewer’s personality type.
