I Have No Idea What I'm Doing

A session on "impostor syndrome", insecurity, feeling overwhelmed, etc. with a panel of established pros talking about when they were first starting out and trying to find their bearings. With an eye toward overcoming the feelings and "faking it until you become it" a la Amy Cuddy: http://blog.ted.com/2013/12/13/fake-it-til-you-become-it-amy-cuddys-power-poses-visualized/


Guess i don't suffer from imposter syndrome. My first thought on seeing the headline "I Have No Idea What I'm Doing" was "Hey, I have no idea what i'm doing, i'd be perfect to teach this!" Now after reading the description i'm not so sure— confidence going down with knowledge is a related phenomena, if you know enough to have doubts about your capability you almost certainly know a lot more than someone who is ignorant and confident.
