No matter what the answer is to this question it provides no real information about the interviewee. If the person answers the question with a modest 6 then the interviewer says, "so you believe you are not the best person for this job." If the person answers with a 10 then the interviewer says, "so you think you are more qualified than every other person available." No win situation either way.

I answered it by saying, "I'm a 6 due to the fact that I know I don't know everything in my field and that there are others out there who may be more qualified than me but I am the most qualified person in this room for the position right now."
