re: The truth about impostor syndrome VIEW POST


Impostor syndrome is a reflection of how you measure yourself. If you measure yourself by how far from zero your knowledge is (or even, how much more knowledge you have than those around you), you tend not to suffer imposter syndrome. If, on the other hand, you measure yourself against some nebulous "know everything about ", you're going to end up with the symptoms of imposter syndrome.

Personally, I prefer to err on the side of "there's more to know" than "I know all I need."


I compare myself to folks not the omniscient types, but those are capable of developing libraries and frameworks on their own, whereas I'm still struggling with the date/time API. 😂😂



I was brought up to believe that, when setting goals, your reach should always exceed your grasp. =)
