Nobody likes those sorts of questions. They are tough, and I certainly get a little stuck when I am asked such questions.

The best thing to do is just be honest. They will pick up on you if you are being "fake" and not being yourself.

If you don't know.. honestly say "Im not sure".
In my experience, this is appreciated alot more than some made up answer.

Indeed nobody likes those interview questions, but they usually ask them, so it's a good idea to be prepared for each one of them. I don't think answering "I'm not sure" to a job interview question will leave a very good impression.

How do I react to Criticism? I thrive on criticism. There is no way to improve if you are never criticized. You would have no gauge as to how well you are doing your job and you will never be able to change your ways.

Default "How do I react to criticism?"

Well, if you are junior, first acknowledge that you still have a lot to learn. "Criticism" is a way to improve so you don't take it personal. Try to find out what you did wrong and try to improve.

If you fundamentally disagree, voice your disagreement in a diplomatic way and mention the reasons for your disagreement.

"A criticism should not be the end, but the start of a dialogue."

Very well put Luke333! You donít have to be afraid of criticism. It can be a good thing and a way to start a dialogue and improve your work in the team!
