The Brain-based Behavioral Interview Guide blends personality type, brain specialization and psychological needs with behavioral interview questions. It helps you select questions that are relevant to a candidate based on how their brain is organized to function. By targeting the emotional needs of the candidate, it helps get to whether or not the job and work environment will provide them with enough need satisfiers for them to do their best work.
Using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® or the Striving Styles™ Personality System to determine how the candidate's brain is organized allows you to select specific questions that will help you hone in on the more challenging areas for the candidate's personality type. It also provides insight into the type of work environment the candidate functions optimally in, and allows you to ask questions regarding how they are using the unique strengths and the lesser-developed areas of their personality style. Brain-based behavioral interviewing lets you know in advance the need satisfiers and dissatisfiers of the candidate so you can compare the position and your work environment to the needs of the candidate to make sure you have a good fit.
