Imposter Syndrome

This CalTech article on Imposter Syndrome makes the rounds every few months, and someone always ends up pointing me to it – the last time two professors, half a dozen friends, my sister and my mother. I wonder if people are not so subtly trying to suggest something?

Anyhow, although I receive the URL somewhat frequently, I thought it would be a decent idea to actually give myself a hard reference to it, for those times it might not be a bad idea to read when noone has thought I needed to read it, but I really do. (Especially with grad school stuff coming up – eep!)


  1. I’m surprised you haven’t foisted that off on me several times in the last few months, or any occasion when I refer to my previous degree as sub-par, or inadequate as a foundation for grad school. hehe.

  2. Well, generally when it is foisted off on me, I get cranky. So I try not to return the favour. ๐Ÿ™‚ However, coming across it when I’m in a relatively good mood and feeling pretty self-confident about what I’m doing, I see it in another light. ๐Ÿ™‚
