Low Self Esteem
This constant feeling of lacking in competence, despite all evidence to the contrary, causes people who suffer with IS to beat themselves up about their abilities. It is common that they will constantly set unrealistic goals for themselves, Subconsciously, or out of your awareness, which are then failed and used as another piece of evidence to back up their incompetency.
For some sufferers, this fear of being discovered as a fraud is an intense motivator to always do better and although this may reflect well in grades, work performance or perceived parenting ability, it comes with the price of suffering constant anxiety over the thought of being caught.
This can be an issue in Relationships or even friendships. You can build an outside persona to cover up the feelings that you feel about yourself that are shame filled, or feeling of unworthiness.
People who suffer with anxiety disorders may experience IS in the form of feeling like they don’t belong in social or performance situations. Picture this: during your big presentation at work, which is already tainted with anxiety about standing up in front of so many people, you feel like you’re completely winging it, even though you know exactly what you are talking about. Afterwards, when everyone is congratulating you on how well It went, you’re unable to enjoy it because of IS reminding you repeatedly that your success is nothing but sheer luck.
