Impostor Syndrome is a phenomenon seen in high achieving individuals in which they are constantly plagued by the idea that will be exposed as a fraud. Every mistake, misstep, experience of not-knowing is interpreted as evidence of this fraudulence. 70% of people report that they have experienced Impostor Syndrome in their lifetime. The need to prove oneself can be immense and can reinforce a central component of Impostor Syndrome – overworking -- resulting in burnout, lack of balance, and a constant sense of insecurity.
