Being a staff software engineer with imposter syndrome means that I have imposter syndrome about my imposter syndrome

Does being successful make it any easier? Abso-fucking-lutely not

@lindsey The purest form of imposter syndrome is knowing it exists but still thinking you're the imposter and it's others who have the syndrome

@lindsey yo dawg...

Additional observation as an ex-staffeng turned EM: impostor syndrome intensifies when you are no longer even delivering value through direct engineering work. "I uh do stuff to help my colleagues be badass and also undistracted by bullshit"

It's turtles all the way down
