WHY IS THE INTERVIEWER ASKING THIS QUESTION?

“WHAT ANIMAL WOULD YOU BE AND WHY?” (ANSWER NUMBER 1)
“I would be a dolphin. Dolphins are excellent communicators, they are highly intelligent, and they always stick together. These traits, I believe, are perfect for the job I am applying for with your company.”
“WHAT ANIMAL WOULD YOU BE AND WHY?” (ANSWER NUMBER 2)
“I would choose a bee. Bees are very hard workers, and they are loyal to other bees! I have similar traits to a bee – I am a hard worker, and I will be a loyal and committed member of the team.”
“WHAT ANIMAL WOULD YOU BE AND WHY?” (ANSWER NUMBER 3)
“The animal I would be is a lion. Lions are great leaders, they are decisive decision makers, and they are courageous when they need to be.”
