Comment: Remember the STAR approach to the interview questions (Situation, Task, Action, and Result)
I hate to hear "It's not my job." very impatient person when I hear this people should care about their job as they do their family.
I assume the leadership role when it's not designated to me because I am interest in taking on responsibility.

I tend to explain to much beyond what is needed/required.
The "What is your biggest weakness?" question is a stock question in the interview processes. Generally speaking, when noting a weakness it should be a small, nominal item and relevant to the workplace. Certainly, be honest, as it could come back to you later in your career. For example, if you note being too talkative as your weakness, but hardly say a word once you have landed the job or during the interview, it could impact your credibility. Most importantly, when you're provided the opportunity to answer this question, be confident and try to make a professional, memorable impression to set yourself apart from the other candidates, because that's really what it's all about.
