In a job interview, it is common that you will be asked about your strong points and weaknesses. For some positions, you will say something nice and sometimes even lying about the answer to sell yourself to them. It is fine, I’m not judging or something, remember that every act has consequence. Back to the thing. To answer the question, it is best that if you know yourself. Be true.
One way to find out about that is using an adjective. In this case, I will limit the number of the attribute. I pick only four that mostly describe myself and then I will compare it to my good friends' adjectives. And this is what I got:
I said: Adventurous, weird, arrogant, coward.
Acit: Weird, tolerant, easy going, listener.
Madu: Jerk, playboy, loyal, weird.
Dinda: Curious, adventurous, cheerful, sincere.
It was astonishing for me, and I’m grateful to get the answers from them. It is crystal clear that I am weird and adventurous. I never knew that I’m a good listener. I knew that I’m cheerful outside, but to be honest, it is like an act. It is my system, so people don’t get worried about me. It is rather sad, but yes, I’m good at it. I can show a happy face, even when I’m about to explode due to anger. It is a bad habit though. I am loyal, but only for them that I respect. And this jerk and playboy things, they aren’t adjectives. They are nouns, but I understand what he means. So far I can remember, yes, it’s true. I’m a jerk, but I never realized that I am a playboy, since I am trying to avoid that facts lol. Thanks to Madu, he explained it all, and I accept it now.
I expand the categories to some extent.
Maestro: Caring, daring, loyal, brave.
Rimma: Outgoing, friendly, decisive, confident.
Sina: Silly, weird, loyal, caring.
Natasha: Pleasant, adventurous, tenacious, kind.
Ava: Fun, outgoing, sporty, generous.
Bruno: Kind, friendly, fun, generous.
Laura: Kind, wise, smart, lovely.
Nico: Cheerful, spiritful, arrogant, annoying.
Ucup: Weird, unique, wise, tenacious.
Goci: Weird, wise, confident, adventurous.
It is enjoyable to know better about myself with the help of other people. And now I see similarities and differences through a different environment. I know better my strength and weakness, how my environment saw me through these small samples. I know what I missed. But there is something big I learned. It is not about the adjectives. Not about the strength and weakness anymore. It is something basic. It is my point of view.
I saw myself through a negative perspective. I saw myself more like a bad person than a good one. It can be the real me, and I accept it. But if I stay to see myself, or the world from this perspective, I wouldn’t survive long. It will drive me crazy and being pessimistic. It is like, I am limiting myself, boxing myself into my weakness. The answers that my friends threw to me showed that I am better than I think. I should keep the positive way of thinking than being pessimistic. Now you see how arrogant am I :D
