Pratfall Affect - Deepstash

Pratfall Affect

  • When displaying vulnerability at workplace, it is important to be appearing competent first.
  • Without competency, a display of vulnerability can reduce the percieved value of you as a professional.
  • When you're competent, one would be perceiving you as somebody who is working 'inspite of' all that is going against you but without competency it becomes 'baggage' that is dragging you down.

Our Troublesome Inner Voice

The infamous Imposter Syndrome, where we secretly believe that we are not worthy of our position, affects all kinds of people across all sectors, and mostly happens due to the fear of failure.

We are unable to recognize the inner voice that makes us feel like a fraudulent person. Our inner critic needs to be silenced and replaced with motivating and encouraging thoughts.

Confidence

Confidence is hardwired into us from birth. The environment of where we grew up in and how we were raised affects our confidence.

Academic self-confidence is 50% nature and 50% nurture. It is important that we have a strong grasp of who we are and what we can be because the perception of ourselves greatly contributes to our self-esteem.
