I hate this interview question.
I feel like I never answer it well, even when I’ve prepared. I feel like I’m lying when I’m trying to spin something to sound positive. And other times it comes out wrong and I feel like I just gave them a reason not to hire me.
Does anyone have any tips? Or word for word ideas about that they say?

My go to answer (which is true) is that I’m very detail oriented, which can be a good thing, but it can also be frustraing for myself and other people because I like things to be perfect. Which in the end is great for the customer/company, but I understand to other people may be annoyed that is sometimes takes me a little longer to accomplish things, but in the end the result is worth the extra effort.

Mine is kind of weird but it always gets a laugh and it’s true. When I’m excited about a project or task I tend to talk too fast. I follow up by saying I just have to remind myself to talk a breath sometimes.

@RedPandas: early on i would say experience. (as in i lacked a full-time position in the related field. i, personally, just had internships)

Oh my goodness, I was asked that once, I was totally unprepared for the question and just blurted out the truth. It was one of my first job interviews ever.
I told them I couldn’t stand being bad at something or not knowing how to do something and that I was so stubborn that I would sit down and mull over it until I got it. They asked me whether I was sure it was a bad thing and I said that it mostly wasn’t but that I was aware that such an approach was a waste of time sometimes and that while it was very hard for me, I would go and ask someone when I really needed to.
It was the first thing that came to my mind because my mother was always asking me why I had to make my life so much more difficult for myself by being so stubborn and thinking I had to be perfect and know everything! lol
Btw, I got that job 🙂
