Hi Toshifa

A very common question. This question needs a well prepared answer and requires high level of self insight by the candidate.

Choose a weakness that is based on the truth. But choose a weakness that in fact will benefit the organization rather than hinder it. 

A sample answer could be like- 'Though I appreciate the importance of work/life balance for a quality and healthy life, I do sometimes overbalance towards work'.

This question could prompt follow-up questions like 'What are you doing to improve the weakness'?
