6. Don't be afraid to ask for clarification if you don't understand a question. It may be more embarrassing to speculate and give an inappropriate answer.
7. Answer concisely.
8. Don't exaggerate.
The listening skills that you demonstrate in an interview are critical to your success, not only as a candidate but as a professional. If an interviewer asks a question twice, or seems to rephrase a question, you may have missed something.
