In this posting, Inger Mewburn (Thesis Whisperer) talks about that period during a PhD when you lose confidence in yourself. You feel like you aren’t capable of finishing and may be seriously considering quitting. She describes how this happens even to good students, even to those whose projects are going well. Well worth a read and there are many helpful comments to the post as well.
