I am a perfectionist and I often require people to work as myself, but I realize that if I tolerate

2. Answer tips

Do not show that you are a perfect person, yet do not mention too specifically.

Assess the weakness

- List 3 – 5 your true weakness.

- Give solutions to your weakness.

- Consider whether these weaknesses are related to the job or not?

3. Answer samples

- Perfectionist: I can be described as a perfectionist; however, that could be my weakness. I

focus too much on details and this often gives much pressure on my subordinates; however, I

am trying to resolve this weakness. Stepping back and looking at a bigger scenario should be a

better way of moving on than going straightforward and focusing on smaller details.

- Not good with customers: I am not very good at communicating directly with customers; as a

result, I’d like to sit at back office. But don’t misunderstand. I like people, too, just not the best

salesman in the world, or even a good salesman. I feel it will be much better to take a

supportive role than an initiative one.

- Hate paperwork: Working with paperwork is really frustrating to me. I always have

difficulties dealing with this. I think it will be easier for me to do all my paperwork at a certain

time rather than complete each of them at different times. That’s too hard to keep up with.
