An article in Glamour today addresses a very familiar bugaboo: imposter syndrome. My father called imposter syndrome “the suspicion of one’s own fraudulence.” It’s that nagging sense that you don’t belong, that you’re not quite good enough, that those who have hired you have made an unfortunate mistake that they are always on the verge of discovering. The classic symptom of imposter syndrome is the daydream of being called into your supervisor’s office and have him or her tell you “I’m terribly sorry, we just discovered we meant to hire this other person.”
I wrote about "reverse imposter syndrome" here: https://albertcory50.substack.com/p/when-talent-is-not-enough
that's when you don't realize you're a fraud, but actually you are.
