269: Imposter Syndrome & ADHD
If you suffer from Imposter Syndrome, you’re a high achiever in some area, though you feel as if your achievements are not the result of training, skill, and intelligence, rather your success is the result of an accident of fate, and you are constantly on the cusp of being discovered as a fraud. This is, of course, something that we all live with at some point or another, but if you’re also living with ADHD, the judgment that you put upon yourself amplifies the negative signals in and around your experience of achievement. Today on the show, guest Dr. Doug Herr, psychologist and faculty member at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, joins us to talk about Imposter Syndrome, its effects, and offers key resources to help move through it to rediscover the authenticity and truth behind our own achievements.
