I have found myself being asked the interview question : "what are your weaknesses?" at most of the job interviews I have been to and I always found it difficult as to what to reply. Till now I have always tried to answer in such a way that the so called "weakness" appears to the interviewer to be an "asset". For example once I tried saying that I was very fussy on keeping things very very organized and that I consider it a weakness. When they asked "why?" I told them about how during my last job I had been sharing an office with another colleague. He was not the organized type and always left a lot of papers scattered on his desk, never found what he was looking for, etc etc ¶This had always made me very frustrated of having to work with him and sharing the same office. With no surprise I received a letter a week after the interview saying that the post was filled and they will keep my CV for their reference should any other vacancy arise. What have you replied to this question which made you get the job?
