Impostor Syndrome is the false feeling that you aren't qualified for the work you are doing and will be discovered as a fraud at any moment. It is prevalent among people in open tech or culture projects, many of whom have been socialized to value other's opinion of their work above their own, and to do things "by the book". Even though they are often very successful by external standards, they feel their success has been due to some mysterious fluke or luck or great effort or perhaps they are afraid their achievements are due to "breaks" and not the result of their own ability and competence. They may also feel that, unless they go to gargantuan efforts to do so, success can not be repeated. In this session, you will learn how societal phenomena lead to Impostor Syndrome, and how you can learn to recognize and fight your own Imposter Syndrome and help others to overcome theirs.
