Give an example of a time you Misjudged someone.
Why this question is being asked: Your ability to interact well with others is an essential aspect to success on a job.
Strategy: Provide clarity into why you misjudged a person, what happened as a result and how the issue was resolved.
Sample answer: I try not to judge a person I don’t know, but it can happen on occasion. When a new co-worker joined our division, he seemed to be moving very fast to get noticed by our upper management. He set up meetings with the vice presidents and began giving reports on how we were operating. What I hadn't realized was that he was new to working in our industry and he didn't have a sense of the communication protocol that was established. Once he realized, he was quite embarrassed and became a better team player. He is actually quite humble and not looking to step over anyone.
