What’s Your Greatest Weakness?

I’ve been thinking a lot about interviews lately, and inevitably about classic questions.

It’s pretty presumptuous to ask a stranger about their great weaknesses. I’d just as rather brush the question aside with a curt and innocuous response. Here are Jig’s Top 10 ways to curtail this annoying question.

10. I’m terrified of bugs. Arthropods, that is.

9. I can’t swim.

8. Drink too much coffee.

7. I have a hard time saying no.

6. My mini golf handicap.

5. I forget people’s birthdays and anniversaries.

4. I’ve got to die sometime.

3. I’m pretty stubborn.

2. I’m a pretty terrible cook/dancer.

1. Kryptonite

    I could have used this list a few months back. In my last interview, I rambled on about how I sometimes cared “too much” about a project, and allowed it to consume my existence. Every. Word. Seemed. To. Bury. Me. Further. Into. Failure.
