In a job interview, it’s common to be asked “what are your greatest weaknesses?” This could also be phrased as: “What is one thing you would change about yourself if you could?” Or, “what would your previous manager say you have trouble with?”
Talking about your weaknesses in an environment where you’re expected to focus on your accomplishments can feel awkward and risky. You don’t want to say something that could make an employer think you’re less qualified. Taylor, an Indeed Evangelist and resource on recruiting, offers 4 example weaknesses that you can feel confident sharing in an interview.

This morning I logged on to do my monthly check of our website analytics. As I settled in with my coffee to peruse our latest numbers, search hits and demographics, I stumbled upon an interesting little finding.
While scrolling through our top search terms (what people search to get to the Science of People website) I found this phrase was at the top of the list:
“How to Be Interesting”
This intrigued me. Why? Because it is not a word I often hear people use. I hear people say:
I want to be more memorable
I want to me more charismatic
I want to be more impressive
I want to be more powerful
I want to be more attractive
I want to be more successful
But, I almost never hear ‘I want to be more interesting’—at least not in person. Interesting it seems is a secret wish, just reserved for search engines. Well, worry no more!

"Did you ever see the Friends episode where Ross buys a new couch and tries to squeeze it up his apartment staircase with the help of Joey and Rachel? Maneuvering the couch around the switchbacks of a New York City apartment staircase is no easy task, and Ross ends up famously yelling at his friends with increasing intensity and agitation: “PIVOT! PIVOT! PIVOT!”
That scene pretty much sums up the year we’ve just experienced. After the initial shock in mid-March, there was a nationwide scramble to pivot. Schools suddenly went virtual. Talk show hosts began broadcasting from their bedrooms. To those of us living in New York City, no pivot has been more inspiring than that of our local restaurants.
The brief timeline: On March 16, all dining establishments in the city were forced shut. Shortly after and for the first time ever, those establishments with a liquor license were allowed to deliver food and alcohol. By the summer, thousands of restaurants were allowed to set up tables and offer guests a socially-distant outdoor dining experience. It was incredible to see what these restaurants did amid the circumstances, and those that survived have offered a masterclass in what it takes to reinvent.
Here are just three of the many lessons I learned while living and dining in NYC during the pandemic."
