Can You Describe Yourself in 3 Words?

We’ve all been there when it comes to job interviews or even a normal conversation with someone you don’t know what well and they ask you the million dollar question… “How would you describe yourself in 3 words?” and you’re left blindsided unsure of what to say. I mean, is it even possible to describe yourself in 3 words? What if you don’t you the right words to describe yourself? Or what if they’re looking for you to say certain words?

I consider it to be a completely unfair question because it’s limited. I can describe myself as “hardworking,” “honest,” and “observant” but if I’m having an off day I’m definitely “impatient,” “rude,” and “antisocial.” It literally all depends on how I’m feeling at that exact moment. So how am I able to truthfully and honestly describe myself in 3 words when I’m still thinking about what I’m going to eat for lunch and dinner and what time I’m going to bed so I can watch all my shows and still get a good amount of sleep?

Please let me know. What are your thoughts?
