Only be careful with this a little bit; I "took control" one time
a bit too strongly--here's a surprise, I'm a talker!!--and there was a
moment in the interview process where I realized I was so busy talking
about all the great things I could do for her, that I'd taken the
interviwer's control away from her. And I could see there was no way I was
going to get that job...
At the risk of being flamed, I'd suggest there may be some gender
issues happening in interviews...Reading "Men and Women Talking 9 to 5"
might be helpful. Posits two communication styles, basically:
consensus-building and one-upsmanship. I'd suggest that, gender issues
aside, listening & paying attention to the interviewer's communication
style is key to a successful interview
