I would never be impressed with such a 'weakness' interview answer as commented. Then again, shame on the interviewer for needing to fall back on canned questions. If you quote Dilbert, and the interviewer recognizes it- then the interview is going in the right direction :-)
I think Wally is right. I worked with lazy people and I didn't care for them at all. But it seems that Wally is well liked by everyone (save Alice, of course), and gets along well with his colleagues. So he is, indeed, useless and not lazy.
Another lesson learned.
Geness - very clever comment and use of words which reflect the wordage in the cartoon. Well done. Me, I'm not lazy, but serene at the age of 70 - going slowly doesn't bother me at all. As for being useless, that's always a matter of opinion, isn't it?
Wally gave away one of my standard interview answers.
What are my weaknesses? First, I'm lazy. I learn the technological tools you give us so that they do the work and I don't have to. This increases my productivity. Second, I get bored easily. Because of all the free time I have getting the job done using the tools that you give us, I look for more things that need to be done.
Now any interviewer will think I cribbed the answer from Dilbert.
