You’re Not the Only Fraud

You can fool some of the people all of the time! This guy is obviously suffering from Impostor Syndrome. But that’s okay, because he’s not alone. I get up and start working every morning thinking I have no idea what I’m doing. John McNamee of Pie Comic actually has the answer for those of us who feel this way. When you’re floundering and feeling totally out of your league, take joy in the fact that you’ve got other people fooled into thinking you’re just fine.

It sure beats suffering from the Dunning–Kruger effect, in which people are perfectly confident in their abilities because they are too incompetent to know how incompetent they are. Or maybe “suffering” isn’t the right word. They might be the happiest people of all!
