I have an interview in a couple hours.

Best Answer:

You want to state some weaknesses because you don’t want them to think that you think you are perfect. Yet you want to be able to turn around and make that weakness a strength. The one I like to use is:
“One of my weaknesses is that I have a hard time saying no, and can tend to take on too much work; on the other hand I work very well under pressure and can multi-task easily…”
