Honesty is not only the best policy when dealing with others. It is also the best policy when evaluating oneself. Researchers led by Young-Hoon Kim at the University of Pennsylvania have concluded an accurate self-assessment of performance – good or bad – is what averts depression and encourages self-enhancement. Acknowledging one’s weaknesses, aside from asserting one’s strengths, is what will most likely lead to improved future performance.
