    Counterpoint to the "I" vs "we" nuance – someone that says "I" too much might be considered a prima donna. Design is a team sport, and I've seen that when several designers put their heads together on the same problem, the outcome is almost always better. In highly-collaborative scenarios it can be difficult to describe exactly who did what, since iterations and suggestions come and go quickly, and files get passed back and forth.

    If you want to know what someone brings to the table, you can always ask, "What do you bring to the table?" I think it asks a lot of a candidate (particularly junior candidates) to guess what type of answer you're looking for, if asked passively.

      That was exactly my point. You don't want someone who says "I" too much... nor "we". Balance. I have made the mistake of hiring a prima donna once... lesson learned.
