The Competence Types - Deepstash

The Competence Types

These are the internal rules that people with imposter syndrome generally follow:

  1. Perfectionists set excessively high standards for themselves and believe they should deliver always a perfect performance.
  2. Natural Geniuses strive to master any new skill quickly and with little effort.
  3. The Soloist defines competence as being able to do something on their own and believes that achievement only counts if it is unassisted. 
  4. The Expert needs to know it all and believe true competence means knowing absolutely everything.
  5. The Superwoman/man ‘measures competence based on “how many” roles they can excel in.
