Hi Karen! As an aspiring female academic, I find myself oscillating between "too mousy and insecure" or "too confident." No matter how well I think I'm doing, it seems I over correct and wind up going to an extreme. (Or at least that's what my trusted advisors tell me, in private and without making a spectacle or example of me.) How do you find a balance? Is this something that women are more prone to struggle with? It seems the males around me don't seem to have such an issue.

Thank you! The Mindy Kaling article was awesome. Looking forward to reading her new book (after I finish yours).
