“Find out who you are and do it on purpose.” ― Dolly Parton
Recently, nowaypablo made a post asking for interview guidance. One of the questions he anticipated receiving was the dreaded, "tell me about your greatest weakness."
How would you answer that question? If we all know that this question is likely to be asked, why do we still fear it? What is the objective of the interviewer? Are they genuinely interested in your specific answer, or are they interested in how you answer? -I think it's both. They want to know that your weakness wouldn't preclude you from doing the job effectively, sure, but they are also interested in how you answer. Were you able to quickly and succinctly articulate an answer to such a question? Do you possess the self-awareness to have a good answer?
So how about it Hubski, What is your greatest weakness?
