Should we say:

i want what your weaknesses are

OR

i want to know what are your weaknesses

I want what your weaknesses are : you are wishing to acquire my vices and human imperfections and character flaws.
I doubt that's what you intend to mean.

OR

I want to know, what are your weaknesses?
Yes

Hi David,

I think you misunderstood my question because I made a typo in my question. I want to know what are the weaknesses of the people I am talking to. It is not in question form. I don't know which sentence is more accurate:
i want to know what are your weaknesses OR
i want to know what your weaknesses are
and again it is not a question . I am addressing them and justifying giving them a test to know what are their weaknesses OR what their weaknesses are.

In this case you would say
I want to know what your weaknesses are :-D

sounds promising.
