    The point of the question is not to give a weakness, it’s to see what the candidate is going to do about that weakness. My company’s recruiter told me even a shitty weakness like “laziness” wouldn’t be a dealbreaker if you know how to explain it afterward.

    Second, interviewers are not trying to ask you what your greatest weakness is. Even though that’s what the question asks, they aren’t expecting you to say that you have an unhealthy obsession with an internet website. They’re expecting you to give a noticeable and potentially detrimental struggle, and for you to explain how to mitigate the risks of that struggle.
