Question: What are your main strengths and weaknesses?

Answers:

- I'm very hard-working, organized and multi-tasking. I like to face new challenges. I feel very glad when I have the chance to help people.
- Regarding my weaknesses, I'm a bit impatient sometimes. Sensitive as well. For some specific activities, I prefer to work alone rather than in a team.

I love helping people, if can help someone I am very glad, because it is a pleasure to me, I work and study hard, because knowledge is the most precious thing ever, you always have to improve yourself independently of your mistakes, but on the other hand, I'm a little shy, I don't like talking in public, I like to do things by myself, on my own whenever I can, I don't share my feelings and emotions easily with people.
But I am a good person, I love being myself!

tell us about you now ;D

Main strength - Keeping my cool under pressure, say, when my boss starts demanding that I accomplish things ASAP and I indeed accomplish them one at a time.

Main weakness - Blowing my cool when some funny motorist cuts me off abruptly without signaling. I found out that I might as well ride a bus to work and never have to face this problem.

Strenghts: I'm a cool-headed person, which is good because I don't stress easily. I'm very creative, independent and easy--going and
determined (once I finally get to make up my mind).

Weakness : I'm very distracted , so it's very likely for me not to do things perfectly or forget things. Plus, I tend not to enjoy working in team because I like to do things on my own time , I don't like anyone rushing me or telling me what I have to do, how or when and usually I don't impose my opinions on people ,so it's frustating not to be listened to but it fairly happens to me. And one of the worst things, I'm extremely undecided about almost every decision I have to make. Sometimes I take months to make a decision. A proper torture for me.

Main Strength: I really like to learn new things and i love to be curious about ANYTHING.. another good strength of mine is to be a Sincere and honest person. I think that's one of the best traits.. Be trustworthy is amazing.

Main Weakness: I have some difficult to learn certain things, but i normally learn it through some effort and persistence.
I also am not that social.. i'm learning how to socialize though... =D

Main strengths: I am honest, straightforward and reliable person. If you get my confidence, you may always count on me. I am hardworking and extremely responsible for everything I am in charge. The good thing is that I have
a lot of common sense.

Main weaknesses: The lack of social flexibility and stubborness. The preference to do things by myself than
share with others.

Ailime,

How about trying this on for size? Then let me know why I changed what I did.

Main strengths: I am an honest, straightforward and reliable person. If you earn my confidence, you may always count on me. I am hardworking and extremely responsible for everything I am in charge of and apply a lot of common sense.

Main weaknesses: I have a lack of social flexibility and I can be stubborn. I often prefer to do things by myself rather than to share tasks with others.


Thank you,

Trying this on for size = literaly as the words indicate = as an idiom = meaning see if you like it.

Bill, shouldn't we have an "I" before "apply"?

I am hardworking (blahblahblah) and I apply ....

Thanks for catching that one.

Bill,

Thank you for your correction.
It's always nice to read your rewriting. In addition, we improve our vocabulary!

Try something (on) for size = to test something so you can form an opinion about it.
I don't think everyone would be happy working here, but you should try it on for size and see if it's right for you.(The free dictionary)

Hello everyone,

What are my main strengths, let me see, I: am majestically aristocratic in appearance, am brilliantly perspicacious, exhibit a scintillating repertoire, have an extrospective mesmerizing manner, and am exceptionally unpretentious. In other words I am the consummate representation of the avant-garde gentleman.

With all the strengths listed above it would be "A fool's errand" to attempt such an endeavor as to list any imperfections.

Now, if you believe any of that "Hogwash", "I have a bridge to sell you". :lol: :lol:

Actually if you use the antonyms for my strengths and weaknesses you would "Hit the nail on the head."

However, "At any rate", I have given you a plethora of words and a few idioms to look up. Have fun and a good laugh on me. :D Because I know that "I am laughing :lol: so hard I am crying :cry:" .

Strenghts: I'm very patient, calm, smart. I don't freak out in difficult situations, I try to solve the problem calmly, with no hurry. I always want to be the best, and I succeed in many cases. And... I worry about others' happiness.

Weaknesses: I worry about others' concern! When I'm one of the best, I fancy myself a lot (that's what people said). I'm a little selfish, I always think, if anybody else is working hardly in the house, cleaning for example, this person has time, (s)he has nothing useful to do, but cleaning, I have things to do, I'm busy, I always study and I'm working hard to have a brilliant future.

One thing I think strange is: I'm very, very sensitive in a few times and very insensitive in many cases. I'm never a little sensitve, or I'm very sensitive or very insensitive! When I receive a gift, for example, I don't express myself, I just take it and thank, but my face keeps the same! When one of my relatives die, I badly cry. But when I'm reading a romantic book, or reading a chapter where a dog suffers (or even in movies), I cry a lot! I don't get it!

My main strengths are that I almost always think twice before making decisions, I always make sure that everybody is doing okay(I mean, I like to certify myself that my decisions are not affecting anybody by a bad way unnecessarily) and I'm organized as well.

My main weaknesses is that sometimes I'm very lazy and leave things to be done in the last minute.

Strenghts - Im very talented and work hard when I want to accomplish something

I once had to submit a written job application for a position as an English teacher in Tokyo, and that was one of the questions.

After writing about my strengths, I sat there thinking about the answer to the other question for a couple of minutes... my weaknesses?

I ended up writing: "I've been sitting here for a couple of minutes now and couldn't think of anything. Maybe that implies that my biggest weakness is hubris. Thanks for bringing that to my attention. : )"

That was, of course, tongue in cheek and a bit of a joke. But I submitted the application, smiley face and all. And I got the job.

Glad their HR guy had a sense of humor. ;)
