This falls under the category, which is usually called Character questions. After this question you should always give a positive and shining overview of yourself and relate it to the requirements of the job. Show how your attributes would be of merit to the company. It would be also very good if you could implement some of the phrases from your Resume, particularly from your Objective or/and Summary heading. That will perfectly reflect everything what you have indicated about yourself in your Resume.
Do not forget that you might be asked to give answers on some similar questions. They might be something like:
1. Do you have any background history that we should be aware of?
2. Have your co-workers ever complained about you in past jobs?
3. How well do you foresee problems and how do you tackle them?
4. Do you feel you are organised in the home?
5. Are you able to cope with the type of pressure this job demands?
6. Are you good at dealing with criticism?
7. Is there anything else you feel we should know about you?
...and so on. These are also Character questions. But in general, always be concentrated on the question and try to learn the basics of Socratic Listening, which is very important method for giving a good answer during an interview for a job position.
Hope this was of help to you!
