Over the course of 35 years and 5,000-plus interviews as a recruiter, I’ve developed an interviewing method that identifies superior candidates about 85 percent of the time. I call it the two-question performance-based interview (a.k.a. the Whole Brain Interview). It starts by recognizing that the brain consists of four core parts:
The left brain, which is more analytical and process focused
The right brain, which is more creative and intuitive
The emotional brain–limbic system–which is how we make dumb decisions, like judging someone as friend or foe within seconds of meeting them
The decision maker–prefrontal cortex–which takes inputs from these other three regions and makes some type of well-balanced decision, at least in theory
