What is your biggest weakness?

Go

(This is always listed as a common interview question and I can't decide how to answer it because it is stupid.)

Laziness when the task at hand doesn't interest me. You probably shouldn't use that one in an interview.

For an interview? I get too involved with my work and strangle my private life.

In reality? Procrastination, usually disguised as trying to think of a better, faster, easier way to do something.

intolerance of laziness and stupidity. Also don't use this in an interview.

I have a terrible temper. Sometimes the littlest thing sends me into, or sets me for going into a rage.

I've scared myself a couple times. Sometimes the rage comes with chest pain. Most times not.

Never use that in an interview.

I refuse to delegate because everyone else is stupid and won't do as good of a job as I will.

I don't seem to be able to stop aging. Someday, it'll probably kill me.

In an Interview - My ability to sell myself, convince people I really do know what I'm doing without actually showing them.

I don't participate in social media and don't understand the obsession so many have with it. I find the entire thing utterly inane and beyond pointless.

Personally, I consider this a strength, but many employers do not. Fuck them, I say!
