How do you get along with different types of people?
The workplace is loaded with a variety of different people with varying personalities and the interviewer wants to know how you think you will fit in. You want to show the interviewer that it does not matter what kind of people you work with – just that work gets done. This shows the interviewer that you are more concerned with outcomes than personalities.
Best answer to how do you get along with different types of people:
1. “I work well with anyone who delivers what they promise.”
2. “I have always been able to get along with anyone. It does not matter how difficult some of my co-workers can be, I’ve always managed to get along with them. I even manage to get along with those that I don’t work with on a daily basis. Getting along with others simply boils down to personality.
When you can understand and recognize other personality types, other than your own, getting along becomes that much easier. I may not get it right on the first try, but once I learn more about that person and discover their hot buttons, I won’t have any problems.”
