Imposter Syndrome Discussion
Class Discussion: Imposter Syndrome
Do you ever feel like a phony? Like you’re not really qualified for the job you’re doing, despite your achievements? Those are signs of the impostor phenomenon, also called impostor syndrome. Dr. Lisa Orb-Austin, a counseling psychologist and career coach in New York City, and Dr. Kevin Coakley, a University of Texas at Austin psychology professor who studies the impostor phenomenon among ethnic minority students, discuss where impostor feelings come from, the repercussions they can have in people’s lives, and what you can do to address imposter feelings (Robe-Austin & Coakley, 2022).
According to Chakravarty (2020), often, academically strong students lose confidence in their abilities and past achievements because of the pressure associated with doctoral education and expectations, which has led to the impostor phenomenon. Learners often make the mistake of comparing themselves and their writing to other classmates during the early stages of a doctoral program.
This can lead to an unwanted stress and anxiety. However, it is important to note that at this stage doctoral learners are all developing their academic voices and grappling with how to successfully author research papers that balance original work with recognizing and crediting the works used as research foundations.
