Impostor Syndrome

Impostor Syndrome [Detail]

A handy diagram explaining Impostor Syndrome, a psychological phenomenon in which sufferers are unable to internalise their accomplishments. As 99U put it:

Impostor Syndrome is feeling like you’re not worthy of whatever success you’ve had. You feel that you’ll be ‘found out’ at any second.

If you find yourself relating to this – and you’d be surprised how many do – you might like to hop on over to Cyclone Life and read Crushing the Impostor Syndrome. It not only offers valuable advice on crushing the syndrome, but equally – and interestingly - highlights a few others who are sufferers too, including Meryl Streep, Tina Fey and Maya Angelou.
