    What I read in the OP is a weird and awkward flex.
    Yeah to be honest I thought it was just a clever way to humble brag haha (though maybe it wasn't intended as such). The whole reason a customer is using a professional service is because they don't know how to do it on their own, so of course they're going to be impressed when you make something look easy that is difficult for them. I always thought imposter syndrome had more to do with your peers than clients, but I could be wrong.

    I don't know how often you read reddit's IT communities but imposter syndrome is very common on there. I guess I've always understood it as faking it until you make it - I definitely faked it until I made it when I got my jobs at the start of my career.

    Its become more apparent that the things that were broken were supposed to be fixed by another department of my company and the politics surrounding it are vast, infact me fixing it so easily makes my company look way worse now. I realize now none of this has anything to do with imposter syndome. Other than I dont think the things I did required any skill at all.

    I don't see how this could be a humble brag... On Beyond?

    "I just solved so many problems so easily!"

    "Weird, I spent the afternoon putting $250 worth of gasoline into my mega-charged ______ after some $100 truffle fois-gras and then test drove a GT3 which pissed me off that they didn't have the RS available for my allocation, but it's ok because I sold my TSLA above $800."


    If you don't know whether you're a shark or a minnow; you ain't a shark!
