- — Gem Dale (@HR_Gem)Thu, Jan 18 2018 13:48:50A good way to look at #impostersyndrome - you occasionally feel like a fraud, even when there is evidence that you are not. Feelings based. 70% of people say they feel like this some of the time - even when you feel that you are the only one.

- — Gem Dale (@HR_Gem)Thu, Jan 18 2018 13:52:39Education system can create #impostersyndrome - it is common when we are being evaluated and assessed, and that is part of education all the way through from primary school to higher education.
- — Gem Dale (@HR_Gem)Thu, Jan 18 2018 13:53:48New jobs and #impostersyndrome - we sell ourselves in the interview as being the best - and then turn up with lots of gaps in knowledge asking lots of questions. Triggers feelings of being an imposter.
- — Gem Dale (@HR_Gem)Thu, Jan 18 2018 14:07:55#impostersyndrome is common in parenting. An expectation that we should be able to do everything right, every time. Belief that everyone is doing a better job than you. Mostly, everyone is just doing the best they can.
- — Gem Dale (@HR_Gem)Thu, Jan 18 2018 14:14:25With #impostersyndrome there is always a 'I won't feel like this when'.... when you get the job, get the qualification, etc. But of course, we then create a reason this is still not proof we are not an imposter.
- — Gem Dale (@HR_Gem)Thu, Jan 18 2018 14:16:26#impostersyndrome is impervious to evidence. We can have evidence we are doing ok, but still put our success down to god luck, other people, hard work, decide it was an easy task. We reject the evidence to the contrary.
- — Gem Dale (@HR_Gem)Thu, Jan 18 2018 14:24:58The imposter cycle. Feel like a fraud. Look for a reason. Think of something we need to do or have not to be a fraud. Try and learn stuff. Have hope, get stuff done. Have momentary pleasure. Wears off. Still feel a fraud. Discount previous thing. Find another. #impostersyndrome
- — Gem Dale (@HR_Gem)Thu, Jan 18 2018 14:26:08This is why very successful people still feel like frauds. No success is ever enough to silence the doubt. #impostersyndrome https://twitter.com/HR_Gem/status/953996642633551872 …
