Impostor syndrome describes the experience of countless high achievers who, despite good grades, degrees, promotions, awards and other tangible evidence of their abilities, secretly believe they are not as intelligent and capable as others “think” they are. Research shows the impostor syndrome is prevalent in higher education and especially effects women, people of color, first generation students and professionals, people with learning and other disabilities, and international students. The behaviors associated with impostor feelings have consequences not only for individuals but for organizations as well.
