The impression you make on the interviewer is more than delivering a great response to a question. The impact you make on them will come as a result of your own behavior and interaction with them. People want to hire people that they like and share similar values. While all of those things can’t possibly be revealed over the course of a 1 hour interview, they will form impressions of what they think those are by both verbal and non verbal skills.
