Q&A: so... what's your greatest weakness?

I was interviewing this guy for another team the other day - he seemed pretty strong technically so I decided to throw that question out. He replied (along these lines)...

I have been involved with a lot of initiative. I see something that needs to be done and I do it. Sometimes I step on someone's toes without knowing. When I do, I apologize and make sure that the next time I ask their permission to "take on" the task, or at least get them involved.

I gave him the highest recommendation (which I don't normally do) as "your greatest strength is also your greatest weakness" is one of my favorite tactics as well ;-)
