Discussion on: Yes, I still fall victim to Imposter Syndrome

I say I've got Impostor Syndrome, but honestly I think I'm just faking it.

More seriously, recording accomplishments is good, but also keeping a list of "I'll be a bit more awesome when" goals. It's easy to disparage a recent achievement, while forgetting that a few months (or years) ago it might have seemed entirely out of reach.

Also, you clearly don't have impostor syndrome - you can't even spell it. ;-)

Oh no! I am an imposter at being an impostor. ;)

Well at least this lead to me finding this interesting article on trying to determine which spelling is correct.

I slouch corrected. English is always delightful at supporting multiple spellings, even ignoring the mid-Atlantic rift...
