As Roshni commented, the first question is usually just that. But you can highlight your analytical and prioritization skills there. Allow me to illustrate.
Interviewer: Tell me about yourself...OR...Tell me a story.
What on earth does a interviewer has to do with a story?...you might assume but these two assertions mean almost the same.
You can sell your analysis and prioritization skills with responses like:
"Since I understand that you're giving me your time out of a busy schedule, I'd be able to give a better response if I knew which aspects of myself (or what kind of story) you'd like to hear about. Would you kindly make it clearer and more specific, please?"
Analytical thinking and prioritization is always respected and demanded in higher positions and by responding so, you demonstrate that you have them.
The interviewer might respond by saying that they would like to hear your education and work backgrounds, but more often than you anticipate, you'll hear "Anything, please" as a reply to your question. Your best option is either to elaborate on your professional experience and achievements, followed by education or vice versa, putting whichever shinier first.
Hope that helps a bit.
