What is your greatest fear [closed]

I am a fresher and made a mistake in the interview process when asked this question. I talked about my weakness and messed up with the question. Can anyone suggest, what exactly you should focus on when answering this question?

Hey,

This is a crucial point where chances of getting rejected are more if you cannot frame the answer properly.

If you are a fresher then you can make some answer, where you can show that you can come up with the fear and can make a difference to your upcoming work. You can answer in an innovative way so that the points of getting rejection could be less.

Like, " You can think that since I have never worked in my life before this, and this is my first job, my inexperience is my weakness. But I will make a difference. I am a fast learner and very open-minded. So I am ready to work hard and put my efforts on and reach out my colleagues",

When you go into a professional interview, the interviewer might ask, “What is your greatest fear” Behavioral interview questions can be very difficult to answer.

Interviewers ask this question to gauge your confidence and ability to handle obstacles. Keep this in mind during your response and avoid these mistakes:

  • Avoid being too specific unless the interviewer insists.

  • Avoid being negative in your response.

  • Do not mention failures due to this fear unless prompted.

  • Try to avoid a fear that is completely off topic from the interview.

Example:

Public speaking has been a challenge for me over the years. I used to be absolutely terrified of giving presentations, so I started taking public speaking seminars to improve. Now, I still get a bit nervous before pitches, but I’ve learned how to remain calm and get the job done right.
