Impostor syndrome

I've been talking a lot at conferences this year about impostor syndrome, and if you're interested, the Ada Initiative has transcribed and captioned the talk I gave at this year:

Kicking Impostor Syndrome In The Head: Lessons from AdaCamp DC and SF

This is the shorter version of the talk -- I gave the longer one at Open Source Bridge last week, and the slides for that one can be found at Kicking Impostor Syndrome In The Head. (The longer talk also includes a section on how you can help people around you with their impostor syndrome, especially if you're in a position of social or technical authority or status in your group or project.) I'm pretty sure video of that talk will be available at some point, too!

I finally had time to read the transcript, and I thought it was a useful and entertaining talk. GO YOU.

I wish had heard of this ten years ago when I had a really brilliant student who engaged in all kinds of puzzling and counterproductive behavior when he was writing his senior paper for me, and it turned out that these were his problems exactly.

Thanks again.
