Behavioral interviewing has become very popular in recent years, especially in the United States. Interviewers inquire about various work-related situations from your past. Doing so, they try to predict your behavior in the future.
The logic is simple: If you acted in some way in situation A, you will most likely act in the same way in similar situation in the future.
