How You Should Answer The 10 Most Common Interview Questions

We talked to hiring experts to find out which questions trip up most job candidates, and the better answers that could win you the job.
Core Process's insight:
" Most people don't know their greatest Strength'' 

This article is a useful reminder that an interview is a ' two - way' process. It is not about saying what you think you need to say, it is about discovering if the role and environment is a good fit for you . It is  also your opportunity to communicate your values and strengths and for the interviewer to start to understand what is important to you as a person. 
Once you have identified your top strength , ask yourself " why is that strength important to me.. why do I deploy it more often than others ?" if you are able to convey why this is to the interviewer then they are getting a clearer picture of you as a person.

Instagram - Selfies are Ruining All Your Relationships

Instagram - Selfies are Ruining All Your Relationships | Emotional Intelligence | Scoop.it

While frequently posting sexy selfies is a good way to win followers and influence people online, a new study has shown it has quite the opposite effect on relationships that don't revolve around reciprocally smashing that "like." In other words, selfies don't just kill you—they also kill your romantic and platonic relationships. 

A team of researchers from Florida State University, seeking to explore the predictors and consequences associated with frequent selfie posting, surveyed 420 Instagram users aged 18 to 62 years via an online questionnaire. Un-shockingly, they found that people's body image satisfaction was directly related to the type of online feedback they received on their selfies. What they also found was that getting negative feedback from trolls or haters, which lowers body image satisfaction, in turn, has a negative impact on relationships outside of Instagram. 

"These findings suggest that when Instagram users promote their body image satisfaction in the form of Instagram selfie posts, risk of Instagram-related conflict and negative romantic relationship outcomes might ensue," the study concluded. 

 

The easiest way to avoid this conflict, therefore, is to avoid seeking self-assurance from total randoms. Because no one's #RelationshipGoals include reassuring you that the amaro filter is indeed the most flattering for the particular angle of your jawline. 

 
 
 
 
 
Core Process's insight:

Interesting article- I don't believe that the negative effect on relationships by  'sharing' online with ' randoms' is restricted to Instagram and selfies . Basically everyone wants to achieve a feeling of self worth. Self worth can come from ones-self and/or others. I see persistent styles of Facebook posts from some people who are consistently seeking approval for what they are doing which I suspect  is linked to their need to satisfy their self worth. The  danger in relationships is when something is not satisfied within the relationship people turn elsewhere to get it and then that is a slippery slope. I would suggest that if anyone who has a loved one or partner who is persistently seeking approval outside of the relationship to ask whether the value that they so want to be appreciated for is being acknowledged closer to home.

Your Emails Are Silently Enraging Your Coworkers -- Here's How to Stop

Your Emails Are Silently Enraging Your Coworkers -- Here's How to Stop | Emotional Intelligence | Scoop.it
These days, we’ve all been on the receiving end of a scathing email, as well as its mysterious, vaguely pejorative cousins. You know the messages to which I refer. They don’t need exclamation points or all caps to teem with anger and drip with sarcasm. Dressing someone down via email [...]

Via Pavel Barta
Core Process's insight:

Its not what you say it is how you say it, are you writing emails that are landing and resonating with the reader or infuriating them. It could be that you are inflicting your style, and the type of emails you like to receive on them  and that is making them mad. Look at the emails they send you , are they punchy to the point, factual ? If so respond in the same way , you are far more likely to get your point across if it is delivered in a style that they prefer.

Pavel Barta's curator insight, February 27, 2015 4:25 AM
In addition to the article - interesting research about online conversation shows that “there's a negativity bias to email: when the sender thinks an email was positive, the receiver tends to see it as neutral. When the sender thinks it’s neutral, the receiver tends to interpret it as somewhat negative.” (Goleman, 2011) – indicating that the only exception to this rule occurs when the sender and receiver know each other well.

5 Ways Leaders Think Differently Than The Rest Of Us

5 Ways Leaders Think Differently Than The Rest Of Us | Emotional Intelligence | Scoop.it
Leaders have some common traits when it comes to how they approach problems, information, and other people.
Core Process's insight:

" remarkable leaders hone an ability called coup d’oeil. The French expression, which means "stroke of the eye," or "at a glance," means that leaders can take a vast, complicated landscape or situation and analyze it so they understand and can express it in simpler, clearer terms and develop the appropriate action to take".

Leaders achieve this by developing a high EQ

 ( Emotional Quotient )

Imagine how great a leader could be if these skills were measured when they were still at college and then, using correct coaching and mentoring increased?

If you would like to discover your EQ score and to receive a 'coup d'oeil '' report that shows your EQ benchmarked against a group matched to your age and gender talk to us www.coreprocess.co
