The Impostor Syndrome

The Impostor Syndrome

It is the feeling that you are not worthy of your designation, title, position or success.

Your accomplishments may be due to luck or effort, but you feel you lack the talent or skill for them.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

The antidote to the impostor syndrome is self-efficacy, which is about learning one's own value.

Reframing our personal hidden bias and negative feelings into something positive can change our outlook towards the situation.

Other people who can provide you with a positive opinion or praise about your good work, including your talent and skills, can wake you out of your feeling of being a fraud.

  • The impostor syndrome is like a nagging feeling that our success might be due to luck, good timing, or even a computer error.
  • It makes us think we have done nothing, and that we secretly are a fraud for taking undue credit.
  • The person suffering from an impostor syndrome lives...

We subconsciously give undue credit to other people who are successful around us, while we undermine our efforts.
