A. Unlike computer skills or other technical skills, there is a disinclination on the part of many people to recognize the degree to which their analytical skills are weak.
WRONG: Disinclination is compared to Skills

B. Unlike computer skills or other technical skills, which they admit they lack, many people are disinclined to recognize that their analytical skills are weak.
WRONG: Changes meaning of the sentence a bit.

C. Unlike computer skills or other technical skills, analytical skills bring out a disinclination in many people to recognize that they are weak to a degree.
WRONG: Analytical skills cannot "bring out a disinclination"

D. Many people, willing to admit that they lack computer skills or other technical skills, are disinclined to recognize that their analytical skills are weak.
CORRECT: Meaning is conveyed and is correct in construction.

E. Many people have a disinclination to recognize the weakness of their analytical skills while willing to admit their lack of computer skills or other technical skills.

Oh, man. This one is a little tough because all of the choices, except for E, do not sound too bad. But I chose D, as it's straight to the point and the meaning is clear.
