Impostor Syndrome: "Am I An Impostor? And If So, So What?"

An estimated 70% of people experience impostor feelings at some point in their lives. It is widespread across academic campuses, and Stanford is no exception. A campus survey by Professor Margot Gerritsen showed that many students experience the feelings or fear of being a fake, of not having what it takes, the fear of disappointing advisors, of being "found out" to not be as smart as they were thought to be. She will share her findings and some personal experiences with the impostor syndrome, and discuss some ways to overcome it, or at least make steps toward it.
