There is such thing as the impostor syndrome, in high-powered institutions when students and trainees hear their inner voices tell them that they are a fraud, that the admissions office made a mistake. And the worst of it – on the next test, the truth will be revealed, and everyone will find out.
You might not be an impostor, but you also might be working among very smart people. If you are as lucky as I am, you would have the occasional opportunity to be the dumbest person around.
I say lucky because once you realize that you work with a the world’s smartest people and trust that you still belong, you will have the humility to become a little bit more like them and the confidence to believe you can.
