What are your weaknesses?

Just like in case of strengths, when they ask you about your weaknesses; the interviewer(s) try to gauge the level of self-awareness you have. They want to assess your character and personality. Remember ‘the ones who KNOW what their shortcomings are; would be the one who OVERCOME them by working upon them.’ Moreover, one should have the courage to accept one’s own weaknesses.

Following points need to be considered while answering this question:
1. Introspect and identify your key weaknesses. Just in case, you are not aware of them then do ask from your friends.
2. Use a trick – Describe a quality which seems to be a weakness superficially but is actually strength when seen in essence. To describe strength as a weakness, try to answer such weakness which can be converted in strength.
E.g.:- I feel my aggressiveness is my greatest weakness but at times it’s the same quality that helps me while leading my team and getting things done on time.
3. Always keep an example ready to support each of your above-mentioned weaknesses. Not only an example but your answer should include how you managed/fought /overcame the same. This shall show your willingness to improve yourself.
4. If you list too many number of weaknesses, then, you are at risk of sounding demotivated. Even the weaknesses that you mention might display you to be an unfit/incapable candidate. So, limit the number to maximum two. Choose the suitable ones out of all.
