Tough Interview Question: What is Your Biggest Failure?

Have you ever had this question in an interview before?  Did it completely throw you for a loop?  Did you stumble and stutter?

Don't worry - that is what that question is supposed to do.  It is supposed to make you feel uncomfortable and unsure.  It is supposed to throw you off.

So how do you handle it?
