In simple terms, imposter syndrome is like feeling you’re playing a role in a movie, and everyone thinks you’re the star, but you’re convinced you’re just an extra who somehow got on stage. It’s that nagging doubt that makes you feel like a fraud, even when you’re accomplishing great things. The term “Imposter Syndrome” was coined by psychologists Dr. Pauline Clance and Dr. Suzanne Imes in 1978. They originally conducted research on high-achieving women who often felt like they didn’t deserve their success. Imposter syndrome is characterized by feelings of inadequacy, self-doubt, and a persistent belief that one’s accomplishments are merely the result of luck or other people’s mistakes.
