IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
The impostor syndrome is the sense that our accomplishments are in some way underserved, no matter how consistent the evidence is to the contrary.
There are several reasons why the impostor syndrome seems to have become an epidemic.
In order for you to believe in yourself, you need to convince someone else to believe in you. Once they believe in you, you feel more confident to believe in yourself.
When you're an impostor, you expect to be exposed at any time. You feel that at some point, someone might appear and see you for the fraud you think you are.
Impostorism is not altogether a bad thing. Successful people should have both enough self-awareness and enough self-doubt to question themselves.
The strange thing is that the more expert you become in a field, the stronger your feeling of impostorism.
In parenting, we pretend that we know what's best for our children without really knowing. Even if our guidance makes sense, it's just guessing. Realizing this, we at first judge, and later forgive our own parents for it.
With others, we often presume that we know what other people think of our work. We should rather listen to their feedback.
