How not to describe yourself in an interview

According to a recent article in Business Insider, there are some words that you should not use to describe yourself when you are interviewing.  These include intelligent (versus quantitative  and analytical), likable (versus high-energy, team-oriented) and successful (versus your specific value that you bring to the table).  You want to be able to articulate why you are a good fit the the position they are looking to fill.  The more that you can tell a story that demonstrates your attributes versus describing your attributes, the greater the likelihood will be that you are well-received.
