Imposter syndrome is something we hear more entrepreneurs speak about openly today as people have the courage to become more transparent about their insecurities. The theory of impostor syndrome was first identified by American psychologists Suzanne Imes, PhD, and Pauline Rose Clance, PhD, in 1978, and was defined as a phenomenon that occurs among high achievers, who are unable to internalize and accept their success. They often attribute their accomplishments to luck rather than to ability, and a fear that others will eventually unmask them as a fraud.
