Imposter Syndrome, while not a diagnoseable mental health condition, is a common problem that affects many Australians – read on for Mary Magalotti’s guide to recognising the signs:
Signs and Symptoms of Imposter Syndrome
You feel like you’ve ‘cheated’ your way to success: Do you sometimes feel like the good things that happen to you are underserved? Or do you feel like you’ve somehow fooled those around you into liking and appreciating you? If so, you may be dealing with Imposter Syndrome.
You struggle with self-doubt: Are you often very unsure of yourself? Do you feel like you won’t be able to meet your goals, despite all evidence to the contrary? Those with Imposter Syndrome often struggle with severe self-doubt and low self-worth.
You have very high expectations of yourself: Do you often set expectations for yourself that no one could reasonably meet? Do you feel like no matter how hard you try, you’ll never please yourself? Imposter Syndrome can fool you into believing nothing you do is ever ‘good enough’.
