Imposter Syndrome with Lucy Griffith
Season 2, Episode #11
Welcome Season 2 Episode 11
Lucy Griffith is a capable and experienced young engineer.
I’m a valuable member of the team and a good engineer … and I am getting things done
However she experiences Imposter Syndrome
It’s a psychological phenomenon where a person can’t, or has trouble, internalising their successes
and has times where she doubts her abilities.
Imposter Syndrome is alive and well in engineering and a key solution is to talk about it.
to help deal with imposter syndrome is to gather evidence of where the work that I’ve put in has led to successes
Extra discussions during the episode
Lucy is involved in IYNC – International Youth Nuclear Conference
This is a great resource to let you know a little bit more about Imposter Syndrome
Lucy really admires the work that went into NSC – New Safety Confinement at Chenobyl..
I was particularly impressed with the robotics inside
There’s a great documentary called Building Chenobyl’s mega tomb
Lucy brings to our attention the wonderful work of Hedy Lamarr
she designed the frequency hopping technology…. that’s used in Bluetooth today
Hedy was the instigator of today’s Bluetooth technology
