Today we discuss how detrimental it is to compare yourself to others, be it on social media, in the workplace or just life in general.
What does this have to do with Python developers? A lot actually. Comparing yourself seriously increases anxiety and imposter syndrome so we hope this episode gives some perspective. If you fall into this trap, we also hope it helps you get out of it so that the only person you compare yourself to is yourself.
Bonus: a bit of an introvert / extrovert reflection discussion.
