- When I was in high school I was labeled with learning disabilities but I overcame it and graduated with a 4.0, but sometimes I look back on a project I did or something I did and I wonder if I did or said something wrong.
- —Guest dreamer
- My weakness is really affecting me and I am really trying to overcome my shyness by daring to do something unusual, such doing stupid things in malls or talking with strangers, but still it very hard for me to overcome it.

It's a Three Way Tie
- I can't chose amongst these three, so I'll put all three out here. Firstly, I'm bad with people who won't shut up and let me work. Second, I tend to get caught up in irrelevent details. Finally, I'm not that good at putting first things first...
- —Guest Enigma
- Sometimes I tend to overlook small things, but I have learned that they can be as important as the big issues so I am working on keeping my eyes on everything around me.
- —Guest Tonda
Lots of Weaknesses
- Honestly, I have three major weaknesses. I'm a perfectionist, I'm a workaholic, and I am sometimes impatient with people who don't work as hard as I do. But I'm really trying to improve. It's just hard to find the time when you're as obsessed with meeting deadlines and exceeding expectations as I am. Did I say three weaknesses? I guess I meant five.

Telling People No
- I have a hard time telling guest or co-workers no, so when they ask me to help them with something I will then sometimes find myself in a rush to complete my own tasks.
- —Guest Victoria
- I'm a bit of a perfectionist, and as such I have struggled with delegation. In college I did most of my group projects entirely on my own. In my most recent position, there was so much work to do that I was forced into delegating some tasks. I feel that this has improved my ability to delegate, but I think that I still prefer to do things on my own.
- —Guest Ryanne
- I get frustrated with people who do not take pride in their work and do not perform to the best of their ability.
- —Guest Erin
- I am shy about speaking in class room or participating in presentations or speaking in front of a group of people, but I am trying my best to find a solution to this problem.

Work Life Balance
- I tend to get caught up in the quest to complete a project at work and miss out on family time. Over the years I have developed a system of mini goals to allow for more balance.
- —Guest Dawn
- My greatest weakness is that I didn't go to college right after high school. I'm 26 and the mother of 2, ages 1year & 6years old :) and I'm hoping to enroll to take night classes for business administration by this fall. Hope this helped!

Being lazy at home
- I am a hard working lady and whenever I'm given a project at school, I make sure I complete it before going home because I will feel lazy when I get home.
- —Guest Lydia Mintah
Laziness hurts me...
- I am intolerant of lazy people on the job. I tend to overcompensate for their work which takes precious time away from my responsibilities. Always be willing to help out your co-workers but I've learned when someone is lazy, maybe it's best to let their flaws come through.
- —Guest Eliza
Minus -1 Experience
- I lack a lot of life experience, i lived a very sheltered delicate life, to an extent, which leads me to get swallowed up by the sharks. I'm not aggressive. I'm not a fighter.
- —Guest davis
- I'm a letters person, I do crossword puzzles, soup of letters, synonyms, anything, I write speeches, recap, do research, summarize books... but when it comes to numbers, SOS, I don't even like sudoku. However I'm learning to like it and I'm pretty good at making charts, formulas, excel.
