As an interviewer or psychologist, how will you judge him?

As a psychologist at a job interview, how will you judge a candidate that during interview, listen the question, is confused, say sorry, then request to repeat the question, then say oh that term, it has the following definition. Will he be selected?

It sounds like there may have been some communication issues, on one or both sides. If the candidate was not a native speaker of the original language, that could be a problem, also it could be something to do or say while they are thinking of an appropriate answer. Not all people think quickly or well on the spot so I am willing to cut some slack, but if the candidate seemed to be intoxicated or on drugs during the interview that becomes a whole different issue...
Good luck to you,
