    I find the results of that study unsurprising, really, but it is somewhat saddening. Of course it makes sense. People who are full of themselves will have no issue coming up with on the spot answers about why they are so great. And that is incredibly important in interviews so the hiring manager can tell that you are confident about your abilities and able to do the job well. However, I think that the consequence can end up being hiring not so pleasant people to work with. That's why I'd hope that all interviewers look at more than just confidence level but also interpersonal skills, especially when jobs these days are orienting more and more towards teams.
