More and more often, agents are asking, or saying their clients are asking for, a ´motivation´ story to accompany the CV. Mine is usually a bit of bla bla about setting up the test program to support the project, being ´pragmatic´ and not just sticking to text books, coaching juniors while being strict on standards of work and deadlines etc etc bla bla bla bla

What use is this kind of story to anyone?

And why do they ask you to describe your biggest fault? Are they really interested in hearing your best rehearsed bulltulip?

They didn't ask for my biggest fault, no. Thankfully. They obviously want some real gold plated bullshit.

Showing some sign you are actually interested in your work probably makes you sound like you might do a better job.

I like fast cars and beautiful women. Not to mention good restaurants. I also have a number of expensive hobbies.

Indeed. I am highly motivated for this project as it will allow me to expand my experience of the restaurants in the vicinity of your office.
Restaurant Aan de Poel (http://www.restaurantaandepoel.nl/)
Restaurant De Halve Maen Aalsmeer Tel:0297-324528 (http://www.restaurantdehalvemaen.nl/)

It will also give me an excellent opportunity to top up the fund I have been setting aside for the purpose of acquiring an Aston Martin.

Yep, that's mine too. Usually goes down really well with clients. Them it doesn't work on were with projects that were doomed to fail anyway, so it's two birds with one stone!
