Thanks Lizam1, for answering here. I agree with you that input of others in recognising our blind spots and exemplary qualities, is very much needed.
Thanks and have a good day!
Thanks SidKemp, for the detailed answer and I quite agree with your views. If we follow your suggestions, the self evaluation will be honest and help improve our actions and behavior for the better, for sure. I would certainly read your work/ book.
Thanks VVanNess, for your response to the question. ''......Brutal honesty......'', I like the expression, which is difficult to possess. We are not saints. Ordinary people with ordinary vices. Getting yourself evaluated by others, is a better option
Very well said! Thanks for explaining the real issue. Thanks for your response to the question!
I remember distributing 'Evaluation of the teacher' sheet to my students. They were very helpful to improve teaching and focus on the topics in which students needed more clarity.
Thanks Sherry Hewins for your response and bringing in a valid point.
Thanks IDONO! I agree with your views. It is difficult to be honest, while evaluating ourselves and if someone else, points out our shortcomings, we may not like it. But I believe, only those who really want to improve ask others to evaluate them.
IDONO, I agree with all that you said here, and I hope you don't mind if I quote you in my hub on this topic. In addition, though, some people can't be honest and objective about others: They either run them down or put them on a pedestal.
Sid- I think it's not that they can't be honest. They WON'T be honest for fear of hurting ones feelings or angering them. But we have to understand, that attitude is harming them. Not helping them. A nice person can ruin your life by just being nice.
We pretty much agree. I think some can't be honest, and others won't. I enjoyed writing about the dangers of niceness. I think you'll enjoy the hub; it will be up soon.
I agree. We can so easily make excuses for our words and actions.
Thanks davidlivermore, for responding to the question. I agree, we can overlook our weaknesses, while evaluating ourselves. It is good to ask others about it.
Many people also overlook their strengths. Low self-image can be as crippling as denial of our flaws!
I agree completely, SidKemp. Thanks again for making another valuable point.
Thanks kwade tweeling, for sharing your opinion. If we really want to improve, then we can get over our blind spots as well, even if it is a slow process. '........be willing to learn and re-evaluate yourself.......', I agree with you.
Thanks Brittanie2216, for your reply. You are right, if we are honest and really want to improve, we must introspect and evaluate ourselves and ask others also what they think about us.
Interesting answer! Welcome back to HubPages and it would be my great pleasure, if you visit some of my posts. Congrats for getting your book published.
Greetings lookseenow aka Jgehen32!
Thanks coleikerd, for sharing your opinion. Self evaluation cannot be complete, unless we understand what others think of us. Each one of us have our strengths and weaknesses and it is good to know other's perspective about us.
