Your hiring manager doesn't know what kind of worker you really are. So, the interviewer is asking this question to determine your sense of motivation and whether you’re a good fit for their company. Instead, think of something in the past that you think you did well and enjoyed, which can be relevant to the job that you’re applying for. Think of it as a positive opportunity to further clarify your past experience and enthusiasm about the position, so that they can see what appeals to you and how it makes you a better employee.
Remember that your hiring manager wouldn’t ask this question, if he didn't want to know more about your past experience. Highlight the main strength and skill that helped you to succeed in any task which made you satisfied in your job role.
