    Well, when a potential employer asked me this, I would always reply "I care too much!".

    But as far at the truth goes:

    I am a sucker for my kids and they know it. They can con me anytime!

    I buy books whenever I see them, even if I will probably never read them. I literally have HUNDREDS!!!

    Food - Steak. I can eat it until I get sick.

    Drink - A good scotch. If offered, I never pass one up.

    Sport - Baseball. When flipping channels, I always stop.

    Movie - The Bucket List. I watch it at least once a week.

    Overall weakness I need to work on - Procrastination. If I can get started I am a really good worker, but getting started is the key.

    (Geez! I just realized I have a bunch of weaknesses. I hope you didn't just mean one! lol)

      I found a new bookstore n my community and wanted 2 buy every book. There is just something about the way books look that does it 4 me. I was lucky that my new house had an office w/ built n shelves, so I didn't have 2 add on a new wing! lol

    I'm afraid this answer is going to have to be plural ... smile

    good coffee, dark chocolate, a shot of apple crown royal in cranberry juice is pretty hard to pass up, going for long hikes in nature,  books, summer activities of any kind really - I love the Spring/Summer months outside.  My kindle, only because I'm out of room for actual books which I still find far superior. I also love to procrastinate with hidden object games. 

    My worst, the one I have to discipline myself with the most is sweets/carbs, I love bread and cakes/cookies so I have to keep them out of my house because they can go from mere weakness to binge/addiction status.  If I want a sweet treat I leave home to get it, or I make a dessert and take it to someone's house, have a piece and leave it lol.

    By weakness, I'm assuming you're talking about things that completely strip you of your rationality and reason due to excessive joy as opposed to simply things you like.

    And based on that assumption, my weaknesses are character keychains, plastic models, plush figures, Claysburg pizza, the promise of a full-blown vacation and/or convention trip, tacos, documentaries on archaeology and historical peoples, Christmas, Halloween, an intelligent comedy, extremely catchy music (not the disposably-catchy kind), oversized shirts, making D&D characters, air conditioning, a good old-fashioned JRPG, a good old-fashioned Metroidvania, any new show that makes me feel like a kid again, any old show I saw as a kid that makes me feel like a kid again, and cute girls with short hair.
