What is your weakness is a standard question. And HR expects us to mention a strenght as a weakness. For example, if A is asked, what is your weakness, then A answers "I am a workaholic". HR will happily accept this answer. wonder why no HR person ever thought of asking back "Tell me how is this a weakness"

Most Irrelevant Questions

Several interviewers ask questions that do not really address whether the candidate is qualified for the position like:

Tell me about yourself (which I know is not really a question)

What are your best attributes?
What is your biggest weakness?
What do you do for fun?

In response to these questions, you should provide a respectful and succinct answer. These questions can be seen as trap questions which could ruin your chances for a job. As a result, you need to avoid providing a fatal response. If you need to discuss one of your faults, try to show that you recognize this fault and you are taking steps to overcome it.
