Speak about the positive attributes you have.

3. Explain some of the aspects that you do not like about the job?

Use the sandwich method. Although you must answer the question, no need to get enthusiastic about what you do not like. Rather start with something positive, related to your issue if possible, and close on an upbeat note. Be factual, but brief when describing your dislikes. If appropriate, express the idea that it is relatively minor and just part of life. In short, try to be as positive as possible about the aspects that you are not comfortable with when answering this question.

I tend to be over-friendly with clients. However, I try to get rid of this weakness and be professional in my work. It's improving.
I have a tendency to be impatient. I always try to close the deal and work as fast as possible, what is not always the best option. However, I work on my patience and at the moment am much more patient as I was five years ago.

10. How you convince the customer?

First of all, I would try to create a good friendly relationship with him. Sales are all about relations. Once I gain his trust, it will be easier to sell him our products.
