I read this whilst my wife was watching TV. I've been trying to explain to her the core concepts of Imposter Syndrome and I've never quite felt like i nailed the explanation. I asked her to pause as I read the odd sentence from your article to her, that perfectly articulated what I'm feeling.
I soon realised I was asking her to pause every paragraph :P You completely nailed the concept, and the feelings that we have with this syndrome. So I wanted to say thanks for taking the time to post this.
Definitely going to try and put your suggestions into play and work on building my own confidence.
