#4: Being Disagreeable

You may think one way to stand out in an interview is to challenge the interviewer, to show him that you think independently and have original ideas. Wrong.

Most jobs require the ability to interact easily with other people. This is especially true of sales. Psychologists have found that a person’s level of getting-along and agreeableness is generally associated for most people with interpersonal interaction skills.

Once you have the job, you can have your own ideas. The interview is not the time to be an iconoclast.
