Hello, after browsing some MBA applications, I've realized that more often or not, there is frequently a question that addresses your strengths/weaknesses in some manner. What is the best way to approach your weaknesses without talking yourself down? Thank you.
- anonymous Previously, I've been told to consider a weakness you have had semi-recently and analyze how you have worked to improve on it. This shows that you acknowledge you are flawed, but are actively working to better yourself!
- anonymous I hate being asked about weaknesses! Feels like a total trap. Great question, man
- Kofi Kankam expert Ding ding ding! We have a winner in....Kendall! Basically, the trick to this question is that if you are aware of a weakness, then you need to demonstrate that you have starting working to address it. Equally importantly, if you can demonstrate that when you encountered a difficult situation when that weakness would have surfaced, but now it didn't b/c you've mitigated the weakness, that is a true win.
