As Tom Spicer says,
“If ever there was something in desperate need of a rebrand, it’s imposter syndrome. It definitely sounds bad. But so many amazingly talented people have encountered it and lived to tell the tale, how bad can it really be? In fact imposter syndrome might just be the reason for their amazingness in the first place. Maybe Charles Bukowski summed it up best when he said, “The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts while the stupid ones are full of confidence”.
