The Psychology Behind Common Interview Questions

It is important to know that some employers ask questions that seem very simple; however, the hidden meaning behind the questions may not be simple at all.

Q-Describe yourself. What is your background qualifies you for this job?

They mean:
Can you take an incredible amount of information, organize it quickly in your head, and present it in a concise and articulate fashion?

-----------
Q-What are your greatest strengths and weaknesses?

They mean:
Are my perceptions of your strengths and weaknesses the same as yours? How mature are you in dealing with your weaknesses? Can you identify methods for self improvement?
-----------
Q-Where do you want to be in five years?

They Mean:
What motivates you and what do you want out of life? Is this job merely a stepping stone to something better?
----------
Q-Why this job? What this organization?

They Mean:
Have you done your homework? Are you analytical?
----------
Q-How would your peers describe you?

They Mean:
How do you see yourself? Are you a leader or a follower? (A quiet confidence is needed here – not arrogance or egotism)
---------
Q-What makes you think you will succeed in this organization?

They Mean:
Have you accurately identified the skills and expertise needed to succeed? Can you prove you have them?
---------
Q-Why should we hire you? What do you bring to this job?

They Mean:
How are your promotion and persuasion skills? Are you believable? If you can’t sell yourself, how will you be able to sell our products/company/ideas?

Good post, for this question Why should we hire you? I had read it somewhere we should "Point out how your assets meet what the organization needs. Do not mention any other candidates to make a comparison."

Thanks for the post.
