I’ve always…creatively reframed…my flaws as ‘I’m a perfectionist’ or ‘I’m working on not taking on more than I can humanly do’. Jokes are good depending on companies, too.. A friend said his Achilles tendon was his weakness in a job interview a while ago and that was the thing that got him the job!!

I have been made, conveniently, ‘redundant’ from my last 2 jobs because of my adhd quirks, I believe, though..so I think in my next interview I will just be honest about it from the start, but mention its benefits as well as its hinderences.
