Question 3: Strengths ‘n Weaknesses

As I say in the video, this question is a bugger. The intention of asking is it is good–as the interviewer, you want to find out how what the person brings to the team will fit in. But that assumes that the interviewee is going to answer in a completely honest, open, and self-aware way.

Of course, I’m not saying that I’m not going to answer honestly, but I’ll have prepared my answer somewhat so you’re not necessarily going to get the most useful answer with this question. As always, giving a real life example can help to demonstrate your point and shows self-awareness rather than tells about it.
