Not being able to look critically at your own work is a huge red flag, just because that's a person who's going to get super defensive in even the most casual code review.

I used to be that person, but I learned to accept that every baby, even from the most seasoned programmers on the team, has warts. And it's even OK to admit that one or two projects in any given gig is Rosemary's Baby from head to toe. It happens. The test is simply to see if someone can admit it to a peer.
