Hello all users!
The below-mentioned sentence has been made up and typed by me. The logic behind the sentence is that despite not having technical skills, a person can manage to do something technical and shoud not be worried about not being skilled in the field. It reads as follows:
Even the least technically-skilled person (whom/that) I am proud to call myself would do such a simple thing.
Even the least technically-skilled person (whom/that) I am proud to be would do such a simple thing.
This person says that she/he is proud to be so technically-unskilled, and even such handicap will not prevent her/him from repairing simple malfunction once in a blue moon.
What is your opinion?
1. It's unhealthy to be proud of ignorance. Are you sure that's what you mean?
2. Your first and last paragraphs don't mention pride, but you use the word "proud" in your two examples. That changes your meaning.
3. It's not clear what you mean by "technical" in those sentences. The word is too vague. Tell us more about what you mean.
4. She/he and him/her are not words.
