    Default Things everyone should know

    Imposter syndrome - The impostor syndrome, sometimes called impostor phenomenon or fraud syndrome, is a psychological phenomenon in which people are unable to internalize their accomplishments. Despite external evidence of their competence, those with the syndrome remain convinced that they are frauds and do not deserve the success they have achieved. Proof of success is dismissed as luck, timing, or as a result of deceiving others into thinking they are more intelligent and competent than they believe themselves to be.

    Nearly everyone I know, myself included, experiences this. I never knew there were a word for it.

    mot juste - A term that describes the perfect word or expression.

    I can spend 20 minutes searching for the mot juste but when I find it, it's so yummy.

    @ThatsWhatHeSaid I thought you meant "things everyone should know - ABOUT THE FORUM" and was expecting juicy gossip. Ah well, I guess potential crisis and thread lock averted...

    I remember thinking that was interesting too when I read about it. Something most, if not all have experienced.
