Hosted by Gord Riddell with Co-Host Dr. Jan Hill
Have you ever had this horrible feeling that you are a fraud and you are going to be found out about very soon? People will soon discover that you don’t know what you say you know. Have you ever heard of the Imposter Syndrome? It is very common. Imposter syndrome (also known as imposter phenomenon, impostorism,or fraud syndrome) is a psychological pattern in which an individual doubts their accomplishments and has a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a "fraud". People with imposter syndrome are convinced that they don’t deserve their success. It occurs in men and women equally. Despite evidence of their competence, those experiencing this phenomenon remain convinced that they are frauds. Individuals with impostorism attribute their success to luck,or of deceiving others that they are more intelligent than they perceive themselves to be. It is a psychological phenomenon in which people are unable to internalize their accomplishments.” Join us we are looking for imposters!
