Impostor syndrome is a common problem among tech professionals. It refers to an internal belief that you are not as competent as others perceive you to be.

While many suffer from IS for years, regardless of personal achievements and formal qualifications, one middle-aged software developer Jake T. suddenly found a way out by realizing and accepting the fact that he is in fact dumb, while others are also dumb for believing he is smart.

Jake is working on a self-help book and says:
