    If you are asked your weaknesses, you can reply that you're a perfectionist.

    You’ll find many articles that will advise you to turn a negative into positive by sharing a supposed weakness that is actually a desirable quality in an employee. Few examples are:
    • I am too much of a perfectionist.
    • I care too much about my work.
    • I work too hard sometimes.

    How to Answer "What are your Weaknesses?"

    Remain Positive
    It might seem hard to remain positive when answering a question about weaknesses. However, you want to prove that whatever weaknesses you have or challenges you face, they will not hinder (and may even help) your ability to do your job.

    One way to remain positive is to simply avoid negative words like “weak,” “weakness,” and “failure” in your answers.

    You might also emphasize how the skill or quality you struggle with is either unimportant to the job, or even a positive. For example, you might mention how your extreme desire for perfection and organization will actually make you a very strong administrative assistant.

    Focus on Solutions
    For questions about how you plan to overcome weaknesses, or about what you’ve learned from your mistakes, be sure to focus less on your weakness itself, and more on the lesson you learned or the improvement you made. For example, if you had previously struggled with technological skills, mention how you are currently taking a computer course.
