How so? Could you explain? Is it possible to turn this weakness into something positive? If no, it might be a deal-breaker. But I'm sure it's possible;)

This is a hidden "weakness" question. Find a weakness that isn't really one, and also explain why it isn't even really an issue anymore.

Additionally, you can pick something that is a weakness elsewhere, but not at weakness at consulting firms. E.G. "I question/challenge common beliefs/assumptions. This wasn't viewed positively at my old firm"
