Knowing yourself can be difficult or inappropriate. Perhaps it is a powerful tool that many people don’t care about because it makes them feel uncomfortable. The aspects that seem strong to one person may not seem to be so beneficial to others. This may make it confusing or frustrating to determine that certain traits you have are strengths, not weaknesses. Mostly something you have to solve on your own. However, there are exercises you can do to determine your strengths for a job or for personal reasons.
Needless to say, your answers should be honest and consistent. Trying to explain each powerful example will earn you points. Also describe your strengths in relation to the position you are discussing.
What Are Your Strengths?
- Work ethic
- Loyalty to work
- Persistence and consistency
- High communication skills
- Result oriented
- Suitability for teamwork
- Being calm under pressure
- Attention to detail
- Ability to think analytically
- Curious and investigative
- See the big picture
- Having an initiative
- Leadership and coaching
- Easy dealings with people
Make sure your strengths are more than you want to improve. The topics you choose from both sections should not exceed three.
Don’t say you don’t have weaknesses; You can create a cheesy air. Make sure it is a reflection of a strong point, not an inadequacy that you count.
For example; I don’t like numbers, my math is weak. It’s a big mistake to say this way. Instead: I get so excited about a new project that sometimes I can’t wait for my teammates to catch up with me. Such an answer is more business and result oriented.
Here’s what you need to improve:
– Impatience to finish the work, while neglecting the details.
– Imagination is a very important advantage, but it does not lose the connection to the real world, right?
– Think and work very quickly, while forgetting to act jointly with your teammates.
– The importance given to human relations, therefore, the inability to act sufficiently decisive and confident.
– Excessive weight given to principles and rules, so unable to move sufficiently flexible.
– Excessiveness in acting alone and in leadership, so ignoring others’ ideas.
– Willingness to work hard, not to devote time to himself and to private life.
– Commitment and professionalism are essential, but life should not be taken too seriously. Humor is a remedy for tensions.
– Very deep concentration, while distractions and a bit of crankiness!

– Much attention to good relations with people. Therefore, the delay of the change.
– Excessive weight given to figures, rules and laws when making decisions, so forget the humanitarian sides of the issue.
