“Do You Suffer From Impostor Syndrome?”
Olivia Fox Cabane
Have you ever had the feeling that you didn't really know what you were doing, and it was just a matter of time before someone realized it and exposed you as a fraud?

Like a lot of people, I felt a surprising wellspring of relief when I read this explication of "the impostor syndrome" -- it's the idea that regardless of whatever we've achieved, many of us suspect that we're frauds at heart, that we'll be found out at any moment. Giving a name to the phenomenon is powerful, but even better this article explains how the syndrome is not just a matter of neuroses -- it's biology too.
