The bolded part I agree with. Some guys just refuse to believe they fouled somebody, so you have to do it for yourself because they are giving themselves a major advantage. Especially when they do it repeatedly and never call themselves for a foul. This is true whether they are trying to get away with something or if they honestly don't know that what they are doing is a foul. It has to actually effect me though to call it myself (like a guy hits my elbow and I end up air balling it, yet he doesn't call it himself).
