「あばたもえくぼ」、詭弁、素直

 就活で「あなたの短所はなんですか」という典型的な質問がある。<ない>とはよほどの自信がないと言えないだろう。では、素直に「自分が常日頃思う短所」を述べるだけでいいだろうか、という問題である。就活に限らず、面接というものは「飾っている」とかなりの確率でバレルものである。あちらは、海千山千であり、面接を何十件もこなしている。学生の傾向も知っている。基本的な方針としては、素直で臨むのがよい。ただし、である。

 「あばたもえくぼ」という諺(ことわざ)がある。後で辞書で確認しておくが、ある人を好きになるとその人の「あばた」(まぁ顔の斑点だね)もえくぼのように可愛らしく見えてくる、という意味である。こんなことは、人に限らず、自分が好きなことにはよくある。釣りが嫌いな人にとっては何もしないで釣り糸をたれて待っている時間が拷問のようだろうが、釣り好きな人にとってはまさにその時間が幸福なのかもしれない。就活に「面接官に自分を好きになってもらう」ことが含まれているとすれば(そして、私は含まれていると思うけれども)、この「あばたもえくぼ」プロセスを活用するというのも手である。

 ということで、最前の「短所」問題である。例えば、A『私はすぐ緊張してしまう』という短所を考えてみよう。「あばたもえくぼ」理論によれば、B『変に初対面の人になれなれしくない、フレッシュに対応できる』となる。だからといって、C『緊張して慌ててしまうかもしれない』。ゆえに、D『慌てないように事前に二度チェックするようにしています』。こういうABCDの組み合わせが、多少「あばたもえくぼ」理論を振りかけた「短所」対策ということになるだろう。

 最後に、「あばたもえくぼ」は一種の詭弁(辞書で引いてね、読み方は<きべん>)である。面接の基本的な方針は素直である。ただし、振りかけとして「あばたもえくぼ」は効果がある場合がある。自己分析をポジティブに使っているという側面が出る可能性がある。でも、振りかけだけを食べるのは不味い。テクニックの落とし穴に落ちてはいけない。あくまでも、面接の基本的な方針は素直である。でも、振りかけは上手に使えると美味しい。

太郎再び登場です。
「あばたもえくぼ」ですか、面白いはなしですね、確かに面接は飾ってはいけないものだと思います。 かなり見破られて、ボロがでると・・・。 私は、飾っていたつもりはありませんが、あいまいな所は容赦なく突っ込まれました。  
今年の4年生には、後悔ないようにやってほしいです。

An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment. There's no doubt that that you need to write more on this topic, it may not be a taboo matter but generally people do not talk about such subjects. To the next! Kind regards!!
