Discussion topic – Note taking in job interview

I’m seriously interested in hearing different views on this one. What do you think of a interviewee taking notes during a job interview? What does it say about him/her? Does it make you assume that they are very serious about investigating and remembering all the details of this job, or does it interfere with holding a more natural conversational-type interview? I’ve heard, or read, both arguments and I’m curious if anyone out there has taken notes during an interview, or interviewed someone who was taking notes and how it worked out.

Also, does your opinion of someone taking notes depend on the job they’re interviewing for? Does it impress you if a tech or accounting person takes notes, but not so much for someone in sales, because you want that person to be able to remember details and interact without the need?

I’m just curious…
