    Interesting article thanks. It seems like a big omission not to mention that women are more likely to suffer from imposter syndrome and are more likely to suffer the consequences of this than their male counterparts. There is also evidence to show that imposter syndrome is not proportionately distributed according to ethnic origin. So whilst these tips may be helpful, some of the factors which lead to your having imposter syndrome are to do with the way society, and the world of work, treat you based on factors beyond your control.
