    Interview question, 'What do you see as your weekness?'

    Is there a good solid answer to this question that dosn't revolve around being a perfectionist?

    Am I the only person who seems to be asked this?

    I am confused..

    yep.

    I just usually say that documentation is my weakness. I won't be lying, but that's what I say.

    Very common question, and you can find a positive, yet honest, answer without much work.

    My weakness is that I've got too many weaknesses.

    yuck - stock answer to a stock question.
    i've heard that from candidates a million times.

    gerbick - that is a GOOD one!
    try to find something that is not the 'perfectionist' angle, but that also isn't a core attribute.
    documentation, commenting, etc is a good one.

    Ah, these boys is all swelled up. So this was earlier...getting set to trade. Then, woooaaah differences.

    "Hookers and blow" has a better ring to it.

    writing stuff down. I always forget what seems unnecessary info at the time, until I need it 10 minutes later, or even 10 seconds later.

    Open jobs all over out this way .... I know some friends from school who just made some cash from a merger/buyout, and are now ditching that company for another, and they're both sitting on 2-3 offers...

    come on guys, I said an answer that didn't revolve around being a perfectionist, I'm not happy with the documentation angle either, my weakness really is not being able to answer this question in an interview...

    My weakness is my temptation to spend too much time interacting with people and not enough time working.
