1 :: What is your greatest weakness?

This is another common question which increases the anxiety level of the candidate. The interviewer is not interested in your answer to the question unless you tell about a weakness which will directly affect the work. He is more interested in the way you deal with the question.

Here are some ways to deal with the question:

a.) Offer a weakness absolutely un-related to work – For e.g. I can’t cook though I have been staying alone for years now.

b.) Offer a strength posing it to be a weakness – For e.g. My friends often accuse me of being too conscious about the time to do everything but for me it is discipline and punctuality.

c.) Offer a humorous weakness – For e.g. I have a passion for speed and bikes are my weakness.
