What are some of your weaknesses?
How to answer
Some variation of this question will always be asked in the interview. Remember to apply this equation: 'My work style is X, and that means I am bad at Y, and I try to compensate by doing Z.' An example would be: 'I do not enjoy talking in front of large groups of people, therefore when I have to give instructions to a large team, I have to spend an hour beforehand writing notes and making sure my presentation is rehearsed.'
