Can a person show too much personality at an interview?

Q: Can a person show too much personality at an interview?

A: Yes. Although it is important to be personable, and even to use a little well-placed humor, you don’t want to hog the floor or overwhelm the interviewer with a continuously loud laugh or too much energy. Most lawyers are actually introverts, but if you’re an extrovert with a huge personality, think about reeling it in for the first time meeting someone for an interview. Show your personality advisedly and appropriately and you can’t go wrong. Good question.
