The Imposter Syndrome at a Coding Bootcamp
I think we’ve all suffered from this syndrome…
except for this guy…
The “It’s okay guys, I’m struggling too, but I somehow seem to understand everything in this module.”
You wanna be this guy…
but you’re this guy
That guy is literally on the LAST LAB while you’re feeling a little…..
a little slow………struggling on first few labs… :(
So now you’re motivated not to be the dumbest one in class and you’re crammin on your computer for 8+ hours per day. You’ve become one with your computer at this point…
you’ve forgotten that you’re human.
You come back the next day with a little fire in you; you feel a little better,
“I finally understand a little more about that one thing we went over yesterday!!! All I had to do was sacrificed my sleep, my social life, my sanity, and my soul!! No big deal bro!!
[30 minutes into the day]
“Hey guys! We’ve deployed more labs!”
“I know you guys are doing discussions right now, but don’t forget we have lecture in 10 minutes!!”
[10 minutes later]
You go into the lecture
I don’t understand a single thing.
[ “……I’m definitely the dumbest one here” ]
My friends…. If this has happened to you… you’ve just experienced
~the imposter syndrome~
Do you still feel that syndrome?
It’s honestly not true!!
