This week we're talking about Imposter Syndrome and why, if you've ever felt like the odd one out, you're in good company. Join us on an Inception-like head-scratcher as we experience Imposter Syndrome whilst talking about Imposter Syndrome in an attempt to make the episode "good enough", learn why tennis remains Elizabeth's Achilles heel and why Emma will never have a job as a pizza chef. --- Malcolm Gladwell talks about 10,000 hours of practice is his fantastic book, 'Outliers'. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Outliers-Story-Success-Malcolm-Gladwell/dp/0141036257 Emma and Elizabeth talk about the original study into Imposter Phenomenon, for which the reference is: Clance, P. R., & Imes, S. A. (1978). The imposter phenomenon in high achieving women: Dynamics and therapeutic intervention. Psychotherapy: Theory, Research & Practice, 15(3), 241–247.
