Discussion on: Which part about your job/studies/etc. gives you the most anxiety?

My biggest would be those 2-3 months right as you start a new job: I'm always hypersensitive about how well I'm performing, always doubting myself, having substantial imposter syndrome and being just super anxious about every meeting – even chats with co-workers.

When in fact... everything is completely fine. I remember my manager calling me into setup a meeting once, a couple of months after I started, and I was so anxious.... turned out to be a raise cause I was fitting in and contributing so well!

Calls are sometimes a funny one as well, as Travis mentioned in the comments.
