What is Imposter Syndrome?
Have you ever felt that you're just not enough? Even when there are evidences that they are not, but have you ever felt that your successes, was rather luck?
The imposter phenomenon refers to feelings of inadequacy, feeling like a fraud, attributing success to luck rather than skill and effort, and worrying about being found out. All these feelings occur in those with imposter phenomenon (or, syndrome) despite evidence of success.
Imposter syndrome, is not a syndrome, but rather, an experience! It happens with almost everyone at some point.
It won't be easy, but will be worth it!
As you might have thought, imposter syndrome can very well effect you emotionally. But that's not the only way it presens itself. It can also affect the way you approach your work.
People experiencing this also suffer through Unnecessary Perfectionism, leading to fear of failure, and expectations that can't be met. This, in turn, can lead to procrastination.
Not only that, a study of over 200 professionals at the University of Salzburg found those experiencing imposter phenomenon tended to be paid less, were less likely to be promoted, and felt less committed and satisfied at work.
