"What is your greatest strength?" - it is not only a tough question, but also philosophy question.


Apr 19, 2016   #1
If I have asked, "what is your greatest strength?" . Its gonna be a tough question for me. Why I say that, is because I confused with my own dream and I always afraid to walk ahead, full of hesitation and confusion, discontent and so idealistic. but for long meditation and journey of my thought I realized it is not only a tough question, but also philosophy question.

Most of us will tell others about our strength are according to our talents or interests,but I had seen a lot of peoples not saying it in deep philosophy. For one example, one of my friend, she said: "My greatest strength is I always think logic and make sense, and I can apply it in my daily life and ". But later I saw her , she only works in easy and comfort zone. Sometimes she tried to deceive or manipulate data for her own sake. So what is the point about her strength? if later it is no use for their life?.

Back to myself, I will not person ask me, what my greatest strength is first but I would rather ask what my weaknesses are, then i will answer what my greatest strength. Then my answer will be: My weakness is I am a proud person , and my greatest strength is I realized that I am a proud person!. Back to our nature as human, self control is the key, and self control comes from awareness. When I aware that I am a proud person, I can make a choice for myself. I think that is the fundamental strength for myself, aware about my own weakness and take control where will the path should I choose according to my weakness.

As goes saying that: " above sky there are a skies" , that is why i cannot related my strength to my talent or my ability to do something. For example, when I say that I am good at guitar, maybe Yngwie Maalmsteen will say my play is so bad. But by self control I can choose a condition where i could apply my ability to play simple music or my other talents.

Hi Alvius, as I read your essay, somehow, it is hard to understand, this is because, the words that you used in the essay are not the right ones that should be added unto the sentences as it does not depict the idea that you are trying to convey in answering the prompt, as a result, the essay became a whole of ideas rolled into a jug of paragraphs, hoping that the reader will understand it eventually.

I believe what you need to realize it that, English words vary in meaning as its form changes, an example is the verbs, should the subject be a present action, then the verb should follow through. This is the trick in getting this rhythm right.

Moreover, as much as you want to be creative in your writing, you also need to make sure that it is understandable and expresses your answer to the essay in a manner that is simple, comprehensive and more importantly, direct to the point.
