Podcast Ep. 19 Scientists and Impostor Syndrome: Can We Do Anything About It?

You may have heard of “impostor syndrome” or “imposter phenomenon,” when perfectly competent people have the feeling that they don’t belong or are faking it in their professional lives.

She discusses one common factor across all people who experience impostor syndrome, and three things you can do about it if you experience the phenomenon yourself.
