Episode #2 What Exactly is Imposter Syndrome?

How do you know if you have Imposter Syndrome?

It’s vitally important to find out because:

  • it validates your thoughts and feelings, and
  • it helps you to identify the right solution.

In this episode of Legal Imposters, I explain the classic signs of Imposter Syndrome as identified by Pauline Clance and Suzanne Imes in their 1978 paper on high achieving women. It was here that they coined the term the ‘imposter phenomenon’.

For some of you, these ‘symptoms’ will resonate immediately. But if they don’t, stay tuned! There are other signs, especially for lawyers, which I call the ‘secret’ signs of Imposter Syndrome. We’ll be covering those in the next episode. SUBSCRIBE to Legal Imposters now so that you don’t miss them!
