I hate self-reviews. I always feel like if I rate myself "too high" that I'm just being boastful or that maybe other people (like my boss) might feel differently. And if I rate myself "too low" then I worry that I'm just being modest and selling myself short -- which isn't fair to myself.
I usually end up tending towards being a little modest (at least when it comes to strict scale ratings). But I've been trying to work on not underestimating and undercutting myself so much, as I've had a history of doing. And now that it's coming up on review time, and I'm having to fill out my self-review, that internal struggle is really raging!
Does anyone else have to do self-reviews? Do you find it difficult to rate yourself fairly and objectively? Or are you pretty comfortable with tooting your own horn/discussing your shortcomings?
