The Impostor Syndrome IQ Matrix explores what it means to fall prey to the impostor syndrome and how to overcome it. The impostor syndrome is a common experience that affects high achievers. These people have achieved a high degree of success, however they kind of feel like frauds. They feel undeserving of the success they have achieved. In their mind, they are successful because of fortunate circumstances, opportunities, and dumb luck. They believe things to be out of their direct control. In other words, their success has nothing to do with their intelligence or aptitude. As a result, they question their abilities and this keeps them from realizing their full potential.
