Engineering is a challenging career. The work itself is challenging: creative thinking, trying to solve problems that might not even be fully defined, developing solutions based on limited information, trying to find opportunities for improvement while fighting against the attitudes of complacency from people who have “always done it this way.” However, these external factors aren’t the only roadblock; high achievers may also face something called Imposter Syndrome.

This fear is being discussed more openly, but I have only seen it discussed in a secular context.

While I recognize that there are other factors that contribute to experiencing imposter syndrome, like every other aspect of our life, we should at least attempt a faith-based approach.

You can read my thoughts on how we can address Imposter Phenomenon from a Catholic perspective on the Catholic Engineers website.
