Stupid Interview Question: “What’s your greatest weakness?”
SHEEPIE ANSWER: “I’m a hard worker, and I can be too hard on myself and other people when I think that either me or somebody else could give a little more to a project.”
HIGH-MOJO ANSWER: “I used to obsess about my weaknesses. I used to think I had a million defects that needed correcting, and I read books and took classes to try to improve on them.
Gradually I learned that it makes no sense for me to work on things that I’m not great at, and it makes no sense for me to think of myself as having weaknesses. These days I focus on getting better at things I’m already good at — graphic design, especially.”
