To be honest, I never really know how to answer that question myself haha!

But yes that's a particularly astonishing reply...

If it helps, there really isn't a "right answer" to that question, although there are plenty of wrong answers. ;) It's intended to help me (the interviewer) understand how you think others perceive you, and that gives a surprising amount of insight into your own self-perception and self-esteem.

I actually asked a few coworkers a couple of questions like this and was pretty amazed at their answer. Something that I wouldn't have said myself.

Yeah, it seldom matches what others actually WOULD say about oneself!

Bit I will 100% give their actual answers when asked in the future.
