Here's an example of an interview answer that does just that:

"I am someone who keeps a busy schedule and enjoys getting a lot done. But at times, it's hard for me to take a step back and get perspective. I've learned that I need to push myself to look around for more efficient solutions and to ensure that I delegate work to others to be as effective as possible.”

If we take a closer look, here's what this answer really says:

Strength: "I am someone who keeps a busy schedule and enjoys getting a lot done.”
Weakness: "But at times, it's hard for me to take a step back and get perspective.”

Correction: “I've learned that I need to push myself to look around for more efficient solutions and to ensure that I delegate work to others to be as effective as possible.”

Here's another example of a good answer to the

"biggest weakness" question:

"I consider myself to be someone who is creative and imaginative, and I enjoy developing new approaches to solve problems.

“But I've needed to recognize that a new approach may be less effective than the tried and true. I am careful not to always push for the new way and to learn how others have been successful before me.”

One more time, here's a break-down of why this answer works so well:
Strength: "I consider myself to be someone who is creative and imaginative, and I enjoy developing new approaches to solve problems.”

Weakness: "But I've needed to recognize that a new approach may be less effective than the tried and true.”

Correction: "I am careful not to always push for the new way and to learn how others have been successful before me.”
