Do you doubt your accomplishments or feel like a fraud? Are there times you think to yourself that you do not belong in STEM? Many students in the field of STEM experience anxiety surrounding their readiness and ability to successfully navigate their course of study. The academic/professional self-doubt and fear of being discovered as a “fraud” is known as Impostor Syndrome. It affects many and is often characterized by a feeling that one will be “found out” or that one “does not belong” in their respective field. This presentation describes signs of imposter syndrome, explores the psychology of impostor syndrome, examines how it may affect students in STEM, and suggests strategies to address it.
