I can be so focused on smaller tasks that I miss seeing the big picture.

I can be so focused on the big picture that I have trouble working through smaller tasks.

I can be shy with people and they might think I am avoiding them.

I can be very outgoing, which some people could find annoying.

Note: Every weakness has a flip side-- a strength. So pick a good strength and a milder weakness to go with it.
