Quiz: There are 5 kinds of imposter syndrome – which one is yours?


At the 2021 everywoman in Tech Forum, more than 92% of our female respondents admitted that they were no strangers to imposter syndrome. With this phenomenon of self-doubt on the rise, a lack of female role models, the perception of how women ‘should be’ in the workplace, and the daunting prospect of speaking out in a male-dominated arena are just some of the many, complex causes.   

Imposter syndrome also comes in different flavours, each with a different focus on how the sufferer measures their competence or perceived lack of it. Take our quiz to find out where your imposter leaning lies — and what you can do to boost your confidence.
