Answer with a genuine weakness
- Almost every response here is fluff and any trained interviewer will either ask you for another answer or figure that all of your answers/resume will be fluff. The worst answer you can give is a fake fault that is really a positive, such as "I'm too motivated" or "I'm too organized". The only way to answer a question that asks about a weakness is with a truthful response, but you also need to explain how you deal with it/overcome it, or how you're working to overcome it..i.e. "In the past, people have told me I am too rigid when presenting to a group, so I have been taking a public speaking course to increase my skill in that area. I still have room to improve, but I'm much better than I was just six months ago".
