Impostor Syndrome and Individual Competence

A talk from EMF 2016 by Jessica Rose

On Saturday August 6, 2016 at in Stage A

This talk will focus on how Impostor Syndrome and the Dunning-Kruger effect work to undermine our estimation of our individual skills and ability to get things done. Who do these cognitive biases affect? And how do they collectively shape the way we interact with work and the world? The impact of these biases on personal and professional relationships among individuals and groups will be examined, along with what can be done to diagnose and cope with them.
