    Q. If asked in an interview, “what is your greatest weakness?”, if you answer “I like to work too hard!” the interview will just think you are lying. What is a better answer that you could personally use yourself?

    A. I would answer my weakness that has positive aspects as well. For example, if my weakness is taking much time to finish tasks, I would say although it takes time to finish, my weakness can be used as my ability not making minor mistakes. So there would be no delays due to minor errors.

    A : I would say, “My weakness is that I’m emotional. When something good happens, it is more pleasing than others; when something unpleasant happens, it cannot hide its feelings. So I try to deal with things rationally.

    I agree with the phrase. Because I think the phrase saying education should be done on its own, not on someone’s impose like the fitness. Just like the trainer or professor can’t work out for students. Education and exercise both do on its own self.
    So, what should we do that educated like becoming physically fit?
    This is a way I recommend that is using the sense of variety and doing it myself. For example, when I took a class passively using only the sense of hearing, I couldn’t remember and understand the class’ point after the class. However, when I took a class actively using various senses like listening, writing, reading, answering I understood very well the class’ point and moreover, I asked the professor what I thought. So, I felt that more take the class actively, more learn effectively. In the phrase, education like fitness using various physical senses. And, the most important thing is to do it on your own.

    4. When you are planning a paper assignment or a presentation and need to do research, what are some methods, websites, or practices you feel are helpful for finding good sources? How can you judge your sources?

    When I try to find researches planning a paper assignment, I use thesis from the official web site like ‘KISS’, which university students able to see free. A lots of thesis upload in official web site, so it is credible. The other way to use credible research is find official web site. For example, when I prepare a presentation to introduce a city, I looking the official web site operated by city.
    When I need various material, I find other’s experience from their blog or youtube.

    5. One of your friends obviously has a caffeine addiction, and can’t get through the day without huge amounts of soda and coffee. Saying “drink less” isn’t going to help. What other advice can you give to help?

    I am going to give advice my friend, “You should have daily routine.” Most important thing to reduce caffeine is have daily, healthy routine. You should sleep enough about 7hours, eat every 3 meals with balanced diet, and comfortable and relaxed mind without stress. A cup of coffee is might be fine in a day, but too much drink coffee harm to your body and mind too.

    6. Write an imaginary e-mail to a professor to ask for something, using polite language; or, write an imaginary cover letter for an internship or program.
