The interviewer asked me some personal questions, like what I do in my spare time. What do I say?

This question is asked so interviewers can peel back some layers and get to know the person behind the “corporate suit”. If you feel comfortable, answer the question honestly, i.e. I enjoy running marathons or relaxing by the beach with friends and family. If you eventually get the job, they will most likely find out these things about you then anyway. Be careful not to share information about yourself that could create a negative unconscious bias towards you… Such as if you like to go boxing… be careful that you are not sharing this with someone who hates boxing.
