Imposter Syndrome is defined as feeling a “fraud” or fearing that you are going to be found out.
If your answer is “yes”, to the questions below, then it is very likely that you are suffering from Imposter Syndrome:
Do you have the technical skills for your job but lack the self-belief?
Do you feel anxious that you’ll be exposed as a fraud in your new role?
Do you try to make yourself into what you think other people want you to be?
Do you hang back from speaking out in meetings for fear of being found out?
Do you have an irrational fear of failure in your role?
Do you sometimes feel like the “little girl” or “little boy” in a room full of “grown ups” who are intellectually superior to you?
Perhaps you feel that you don’t deserve what you have worked so hard to achieve in your career or that it is partly luck that has got you to where you are. Maybe you think that despite your achievements, you still aren’t quite good enough.
All these uncertainties are characteristics of Imposter Syndrome and 70% of people will experience the symptoms at least once in their life. It is usually associated with success and is likely to happen around a career transition such as a promotion or starting a new job.
