My Way

I always expect things to go my way and if it doesn't, I lose faith. Though I know that not everything in life goes according to our plans, rejection and failure make me to give up.
—Guest Snowie


I'm a problem solver so I can take on other people's problems too. I have learnt to step back and focus on what I can control and wait for others to seek me out for help.
—Guest Melissa

Self Doubt

I often doubt my abilities and fail to have faith in my work especially if I have attempted at a task and not achieved the results I had hoped for. I have learned that positive results cannot be achieved with a negative mindset. By remembering that it's human nature to make mistakes, I am able to use my failures as a chance to begin more intelligently and exceed expectations.

My Weakness as a Positive

I like to make sure that my work is perfect, so I tend to perhaps spend a little too much time checking it. However, I've come to a good balance by setting up a system to ensure everything is done correctly the first time.

Intolerance of Loquacious Ignorance

I can't stand senseless chatter. People who talk a lot about nothing at all really irk me! I need a life raft for this one.

Non Performance (Weakness)

I am always been great performer and achiever and I have never stood among the failures and I never wanted to be. I can't tolerate non performance from myself or fro my team as well. I believe there is no valid justification for non-performance.

Weakness Answers

Here are some possibilities: 1) I try to make things perfect but realize that's impossible, so I simply always try my best and that always works. 2) I put too much detail in everything; as such I am always reading or finding ways of learning how to prioritize. As far back as I can remember, I have constantly written down things I need to do, buy, or complete. 3) I've been teaching myself not to give a lot of importance some some tasks -- not everything needs to be accomplished in a day.

My weakness is not expressing myself properly. I know what I want to say but I can't express myself properly, especially when I am in a hurry.
—Guest Gurpreet

Big Spender

My greatest weakness is that I don't know how to spend on my salary. I end up broke before the end of the month. To avoid this I always keep aside enough money to cover all necessary things like transport, food, clothing and bills. This has helped me to save every month.

Great Talker

I am a great talker and a true sales person. But in the face of adversity sometimes I need to stop. I have been known to babble when nervous.

Keeping Things to Myself

My greatest weakness is that I tend to keep my problems to myself and make others feel I am fine when I am not, but I've learnt that it causes more harm than good. Everyone has problems and i'ts ok sometimes to share my problems with my trusted friends.
