Liza Hollis reports:
"Identify the character traits that you want to describe. This will allow you to get to the 'heart' of the matter. For example, a weakness might not be that you are 'lazy'; it might instead be that you are 'unfocused' and 'easily distracted.' Similarly, it is unlikely that a strength would be that you are 'successful'; it might instead be that you are 'driven' or 'tenacious.' Show how these strengths and weaknesses have come into play. The most impactful descriptions are ones that rely on anecdotal evidence that demonstrates these traits, not just lists them for an audience...Describe these traits from both positive and negative perspectives. This is especially important for a job interview...Remain humble when describing strengths, but be detailed with your claims. Always list weaknesses with the acknowledgment that these weaknesses can be channeled into more successful practices."
