“There are five competency types when it comes to the impostor syndrome,” says today’s starting quarterback, Michelle Gomez. “The Perfectionist, the Natural Genius, the Expert, the Rugged Individualist, and the Super Man -Super Woman – Super Student.
“I coined the acronym UCON which stands for Unique Cocktail of Needs and it’s helped a lot of people understand which type they are and what stops them from living a full and authentic life.”
Of course, I was curious which one I was so I took Michelle up on her generous offer and signed up for her assessment (link below).
