|Your resume is full of technical qualifications... what about the ability to work with other people?|
|Tell me about yourself.|

As for my greatest strength, it's harder to name. The thing that I would pick is a gestalt, a combination of technical knowledge and experience with a talent perhaps called "design intuition", and a love of abstract mental effort and creativity for its own sake. In other words, I love to design new things, and I think I'm very good at it. (Especially when the thing is an abstraction, such as a computer program or a set of game rules.) You've probably noticed that this is exactly the thing that both my one-page resume and this web site focus on the most. That was no accident. Since it's covered in such great detail everywhere else, nothing more need be said here.
What I probably need to let you know more, at this point, is that I'm talking about my greatest strength in my job, and this is highly dependent upon the job that I'm looking for. In a design position, I think this is the single most critical factor. A very close second (and likely first, in many other jobs), however, is the ability to work with people. In fact, both are quite essential. Be sure to ask me about my ability to work with other people.
