“Impostors” Downshift Career Goals

While both men and women suffer from impostor syndrome, more women than men experience it, says the study’s principal investigator, Jessica L. Collett, a sociologist at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana, in an interview with Science Careers. Women also feel like impostors more frequently than men do, she says, and are more encumbered by it. “Impostorism is something that negatively affects both men and women, but it’s more pronounced among women, and therefore affects their career trajectories more,” she says.
