Don’t hire based on personality characteristics you think you see in candidates.

Instead [even though you are busy, even though they came via a fantastic referral, even though it completely makes sense on paper to choose an ‘action-oriented person’ over a ‘person that seems like a rule-follower’]: don’t trust your gut when it comes to hiring — trust defined, objective hiring criteria.
