The question

What annoys you?

What do you find most irritating?

What gets you cross?

Have you ever lost your cool at work?

What they are looking for

They may be concerned about how negative you get, particularly over topics and in situations where they do not think you should be upset. In this, they may also be looking for how you respond to and control any tendency towards anger.

They may also be looking for aspects of what motivates you. Anger often comes from an inability to meet goals. Understanding the anger can lead to understanding of the goal.

How to answer

Beware of appearing as a generally angry person who cannot control your negative emotions. Whilst not appearing frigidly cold, do not show significant negative emotions.

I do find it rather frustrating when suppliers do not deliver to their promises. However, I have found it most useful when.

Show also that you are not always annoyed and that negative emotion is a relatively rare thing. Indicate how your general resourcefulness helps you resolve situations before they become too annoying.

I occasionally get annoyed when circumstances outside my control keep preventing me delivering things on time. But usually I am able to treat such situations as a challenge and generally find a way around them.

If they ask you about times when you were angry, beware of being triggered into that angry state that may affect how you answer questions.
