How to Make a Good Impression At a Job Interview

I did once try the “My only flaw as an employee is that I care too much about the quality of my work” gambit. I didn’t get the job. At first I assumed it was because the interviewer figured I was lying, but later I realized that he probably checked with my supervisors (the interview was for a transfer to a new location within the company I worked for at the time) and was likely told that I had recently gotten into a dispute with a coworker about how the poor quality of their work made us all look like idiots.

I’m probably the only person in the history of the “My flaw is that I care too much” gambit to lose out on a job because the statement was provably true.
