Sometimes I like to practice my answers to those types of questions. The question about your greatest weakness is a hard question because it requires a lot of self-awareness on my part and willingness to be honest about it. Some ideas:1) talk about one's particular working style, or 2) talk about a time you were challenged and how you fixed the situation. The weakness would be an extraction of why/how you were challenged (for example, that same challenge may not have been one for others).
There always seems to be at least one question in my interviews that throws me for a loop. Sometimes it is a common question such as "What is your greatest weakness?" and other times it is an unexpected question like "I see you have a Theatre degree. What are you doing applying here?" I'm curious to see if others have had this experience, and how they handled the question and got their footing back.
