So many people thinking of themselves as "excellent"... Jul 16, 2005

I just wonder if a good psychotherapy service is needed at ProZ? Maybe, it depends on a culture, but a good dose of self-criticism is probably not that bad thing. Totally understanding the provocating nature of the poll topic, I wonder if there were so many of us who took it at its face-value or are self-confident enough to claim they are the best ever? Just curious...

But what do you answer, if you ARE excellent?:D After all the self-criticism, and what not.
