Question 2 of 28
Do you consider yourself a creative thinker in the workplace or do you prefer to follow a predetermined set of rules?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Most organizations prefer to hire candidates who can apply creative thinking when needed, but can also follow protocol and guidelines. Assure the interviewer that you are an individual who can achieve both.

Answer Example
"In the workplace, I naturally lean towards my preference of straightforward rules and expectations. From there, once I am comfortable in my knowledge base, I can start to think outside of the box. So - to answer your question - I would say I bring a healthy balance of both."
Answer Example
"I am most comfortable when my creativity is challenged. I like to think of new ways of working, and create alternate solutions to a variety of scenarios. With that said, I am more than capable of following a predetermined set of rules."
