I find perhaps one of the most difficult traits to work with in a team is someone who is inflexible and overly strongly opinionated.

The reality is that most things, including software development, are nuanced and an overly opinionated person, while they might get work done and be technically brilliant, can store up a whole load of technical debt problems for later as their strong opinions may make it difficult to discuss an issue.

So I would consider asking a question that will show you how they deal with something when they have a disagreement - how willing are they to listen to and understand another person's point of view?
