My greatest weakness

My BIGGEST weakness is that I am honest to a fault. I will run to my supervisor to tell them that I did something outside my department to be helpful only to be scolded for doing someone else's job. Over time I have also learned another big weakness is actually a positive trait gone too far. I am HELPFUL to others but have learned that it interferes with completing my assignments in a timely manner. I have also learned that helping customers outside of my department intereferes with the flow of business and often confuses more people than are helped.
