I'm totally sold on behavioral-style interview questions and I am implementing them for interviews in my organisation. However, I get some resistance from people who are used to asking questions in the "what would you do in [x situation]?” style. In the podcast “how to evaluate answers to the weakness question", Mark describes this style of question as “ludicrous…people do that all the time and it's dumb dumb dumb”. But he doesn't really elaborate on precisely why they are so “dumb” and so I'm not entirely sure how to rebut those who wish to continue using them.
Does anyone know why MT advises against these questions so strongly?
