What is the different Shortcomings vs. weaknesses? Please give examples.?
I am writing a self-evaluation paper for my internship and we have to write our strengths, weaknesses, shortcomings, and future career interests. Can someone please give me an example of shortcomings and how they differ from weakness? Thank you.

A shortcoming is the inability to reach a certain level or goal. Like you can really try hard and never really be an A student in math. You simply do not have the ability to do it as easily as someone else. Thats a shortcoming. A weakness in its simplest term is the inability to be strong. If you simply cannot resist the temptation to eat ice cream when you know its in that freezer, thats a weakness.

In that case being unable to overcome the temptation isn't that a shortcoming?
