Winsome Self-Assessments

Do you see it as a strength or weakness when a person admits his or her limitations? Why? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 1613).

I see this as a continuum with those who adamantly refuse to admit any limitations on one extreme and those who constantly lament their limitations on the other. So we have two extremes--stiff-necked arrogance opposite doormat victimization. Clearly neither is what we want. Ideally, a person should be able to gracefully admit their strengths as well as fess up to their weaknesses. If they can't carry a musical note in a bucket, freely admit it.  But freely admit as well they are good at math.  In short, show balance and a healthy humility in refreshingly candid self-assessments.
