Imposter Syndrome

Impostor Syndrome is the (incorrect) feeling that you’re a fraud, that you’re not skilled enough for your role, and that you will be found out and exposed as an impostor eventually. More people than you realize have Impostor Syndrome (including many people you respect) for a very simple reason: If you’re afraid of being exposed as a fraud, the last thing you want to do is tell anyone about it!
