The Finish: Spotting Mental Toughness

If I am recruiting mentally tough people who refuse to quit, I can simply look for patterns of finishing. Do people finish? Some might think of this as a pass or fail judgement, but at the end of the day, some things are. Did you finish what you committed to? A mentor of mine taught me to ask certain questions in interviews. They involved looking at whether people finished school and military commitments. Early exits in these times of life may indicate whether someone will finish what you ask them to do. Anyone can start something, but knowing if someone graduated is far better information than knowing what their major was.
