And they ask you what are your 3 best qualities and 3 worst qualities? How do you respond?

(yes, I have an interview in the morning and I hate this question!!)

honesty is the key in all interviews.


If you know of a specific weak quality, then tell them.

ETA: don't make something up.

I would have a difficult time not breaking out in laughter if asked such a silly question.

No. Interviews are FIRST about screening for rejection criteria. Don't give them rejection criteria on a silver platter. Turn all your negatives into positives.

"My staff would say I am driven, but that is only because I want them to achieve their potential."

"I get frustrated with delays, but that is only because I am a dynamic individual. The good thing is I can adapt."

"I'm a gun freak and I'll go postal on your ass."

"My decisions take a little longer, but that is because I recognize concensus provides the best results."

There, I gave you four responses. You pick the best three.

I generally do well at my interviews, because I don't wear pants and I smell of urine.

Sue me, it works. Try it and see.

"I tend to take on too much work"

Would it be considered bad form to write these down on my hand, and refer to them during the interview? I could say one of my weaknesses is a bad memory



seriously though, Great suggestions so far keep 'em coming.

I will bring my digi cam just in case the interview starts to go sour. If its not looking good then what do I have to lose.......

Seems like most the places I work looked for those qualities in the people they hire.
