During any interview process, you can tweak several non-verbal variables to signal different ideas about yourself.
More authoritative people signal more competence, but this comes at the tradeoff of appearing warm and humble.
Conversely, less authoritative people signal less competence, but this comes with the benefit of appearing warm and humble.
A good way to figure out if you need to signal more or less authority during interviews is to reflect on past experiences.
If you typically get rejected from interviews because people think you’re under-qualified / incompetent / a pushover, you may want to signal more authority
Conversely, if you typically get rejected from interviews because people think you’re cold / arrogant / egotistical, you may want to signal less authority
