Can you tell me how you make important decisions?

How to Use

Interviewer: Can you tell me how you make important decisions?

Bill: When making an important decision, I think it is crucial to take your time. You don't want to rush into a decision without thinking carefully about it. So, if possible I try to take a couple of days to think deeply about the situation.

Interviewer: Can you think about a time you did this?

Bill: That's easy. I did it when I decided to quit my previous job. That was not an easy decision at all. I thought about it for a couple of weeks. I talked about it with my wife, friends, and colleagues to get advice and hear their opinions. And in the end, I made the decision that I felt was the best for me and my family.

Interviewer. What if you don't have a lot of time to decide?

Bill: In that case, then I usually try to go to a quiet place or take a short walk in order to think clearly. After I spend a little time thinking about it, then I just trust my judgment and instincts.
