Personality Disorders & Interviewing

Personality types can play a big role in the interviewing process. Indentifying personality types is key in a successful interview process. Through years of experience, law enforcement and researchers have developed three main clusters of personality types. Each has a distinct set of characteristics that can uniquely impact the interviewing process. Through behavior analysis one can quickly identify what personality cluster a person exhibits and refine the interview technique to optimize the interview. Learn to identify A, B and C cluster personalities as well as other personality disorders that may affect the communication process.
