when reading interview feedbacks, i read over and over the advise that one should stick to their guns on a certain issue. "stand strong on the position you're arguing because the interviewer may just be trying to get you to change your mind." has anyone found that the opposite may have worked to their benefit? i walked into my interview ready with my opinions and thought nothing was going to budge me. an issue came up. i explained my beliefs. they countered with a really good reason to consider something else. i considered it. i opened it to possibility. if you really stick to your guns on an issue and the counter argument is fair and you don't budge, can they consider you closed minded? maybe its really about the way you hold yourself and maturely consider important issues by including your strong beliefs but never excluding other possibilities.
