Yes, you’ve read it right: PHENOMENON, not Syndrome.
And that has a reason, which Sanne Feenstra explains in the interview. A little hint; a syndrome has to do with you as a person, and phenomenon has to do more with environmental factors.
Sanne is doing research on the topic, more from a social psychology perspective. She is rooting for cultural change in academia, where we found common ground, and I bet you will too.
We also talk about…
- what risk factors are associated with Imposter Phenomenon
- what we can do in order to improve Imposter feelings in academia
- Sanne’s ‘imposter moment‘ during her PhD
- what is helpful in tackling your own Imposter feelings
Curious to hear what you think and let me know if you have any questions or comments, both Sanne and I are happy to talk to you about it :-).
