Imposter Syndrome

Imposter Syndrome is a psychological phenomenon where a person doubts his or her own skills and competencies.

They believe that their coworkers will get to know that they may be just faking their way in the company without knowing much and that they are a fraud.

Self-doubt and feelings of being an imposter mostly arise among brilliant, qualified people who try to measure themselves with other, similarly qualified coworkers.
