Impostor syndrome is real, we've all felt it when we doubt our abilities but we don't talk about it, and today I will.

Alright show notes times!

I do apologize I just noticed it's "Impostor" not "Imposter" so during the whole episode I'll be saying it with an "E" not an "O". I know I'm shaking my head as I type this, BUT we're not all perfect, I am human too.

I'll be linking the sites I've gotten the information from:

-General wiki page for impostor syndrome, Clance's & Imes' research found impostor syndrome mostly connected to females within the work place but recent studies have found that it's pretty much found in both genders. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impostor_syndrome

-Dr. Young's research on the 5 different types of impostor syndrome, check this one out and see which one resonates with you, the article has some suggestions to challenge yourself for each type. https://www.themuse.com/advice/5-different-types-of-imposter-syndrome-and-5-ways-to-battle-each-one

-This APA (American Psychological Association) website is great and gives you an opportunity to check out other things going with the world of Psych. I used this as a resource for the possible tools you can use to help with your impostor syndrome. https://www.apa.org/gradpsych/2013/11/fraud

That's it! Thanks for reading.
