If you are applying for a job and these questions are being asked on an application form which is what i am assuming you have said, then i would say you need to answer them yourself as coming on here and asking for tips probably shows you are not suitable and would only help put someone in a position that they did not merit.
I am assuming you are asking us to answer these for you from an app form. Sorry if this sounds harsh but i am only being honest.

I totally agree with dalsoth. Those questions are your opinion and no one can answer them but yourself. They seem hard to answer but look in the mirror and ask yourself the questions and you should be able to answer them.

If the application form has those questions on them, you wouldn't want to work for that company.
Seriously, who besides people who have no idea what they are doing still asks for strengths and weaknesses.

I just don't think helping someone improve those particular types of questions is fair. The employer is looking for a personal answer relating to the particular candidate. To help someone with this stuff in my eyes would be cheating the employer out of a fair chance at hiring the correct candidate.
If someone struggles with these questions for whatever reason then i believe that they are perhaps aiming too high or at the wrong type of job.
If you rewrite someones CV because it looks a mess then i can accept that. If you help someone with cleaning up or answering these questions then i would say that is cheating and wrong.

and even attempting to answer some of them without knowing the job specification would be rediculous?!?!
7. What can you do for the company. I can sell ice-creams at lunchtime to all staff, improving the profit making capabilities of the company and keeping the staff happy and sustained!

I don't want to offend, but you come across as someone for whom English is not their first language and that might be why you are struggling to get good answers to these questions.
If you can find someone who can do a mock interview with you then you may find it easier to get the answers in your own words - they should be able to prompt you when you get stuck and if they know you at least a little then this will also help (there really is no point in someone else telling you what you can bring to a company!)

I somewhat agree with SRochford - poor grammar/spelling on an application form is a big no-no, especially if the person has a university education. Don't write the way that you speak - i.e. don't use colloquialisms.
We all have unique talents and skills which we give to our employer - you have to ask what yours are?
Strengths and weaknesses - we all have them - what are you good at, and what are you weak at. In respect to the things you are weak at, what are you going to do about them?
In this current climate, employers don't just want someone who can do the job; they also want 'added value' - i.e. what skills/talents do they get for free!

What is your CV like? Maybe it needs a bit of tweaking? I am happy to have a look at it once I have looked over a couple I already have...

Yes there is certainly a pattern there. They are asking for your answers. You need to give your own answers and if you are not happy with any of the answers then you need to think what you can do to improve them.
