      1st Answer Example

      "Experiencing a setback is something no one ever wants to experience. I tend to keep my emotions in check when I do encounter a setback. I like to focus on the problem at hand and how I can find a solution. I think this would be beneficial for Colgate-Palmolive as I am a very level-headed problem solver."
