Be honest...what is your basic philosophy of life? Don't simply try to impress anyone...be totally honest. And explain
I have a MAJOR character flaw in that I have always, since childhood, put it upon myself to try to make things right for other people...empathetic, passionate, I care about what is right. This has caused me some horrible problems in life, as you can imagine. As a military officer, I could have gotten a lot further if I fit into the mold, but instead, because it was right, I rubbed my superiors the wrong way because I always stood up for my subordinates. To this day, my profession requires me to be in charge of many people at one time, I look after my "people" as if they were my children. As you can imagine, it has caused me grief...but it's still the right thing to do. You MIGHT think this is all quite admirable, but it's really not. I wish I could have found a balance. My philosophy?...take care of others...be compassionate and empathetic.
