Good question. I've been contemplating what I would say on that one too. I think part of the answer depends on what that quality is and the other part depends on how you talk about it, but I really don't know. I hope someone responds.MHC said:any thoughts on what is a good response to the "what are your weaknesses" question in interviews?
This sums it all up I believe. Tell an honest weakness followed up with what you have done to overcome. It shows humility in recognition and courage to face it head on.futuredo32 said:I think (though cliche) that honesty is the best policy. I would tell them what your weakness really is, but also say how you have worked to improve upon this weakness. For me, it was that I am REALLY self-conscious about public speaking and that lead to me being horrible at giving presentations. I then said that I actually went out of my way to find opportunities to speak in public because I knew that physicians are required to give presentations, etc, and with practice, I can now give a decent preesntation.
