Just to add some detail.

A supercharger is normally driven by a belt/chain/gear attached to the crankshaft (central spinning part) of the engine.

A turbocharger is driven by the outgoing exhaust gases from the engine. For this reason, there can be a little delay between pushing on the accelerator and actually getting the boost in power.

Both of these may be used in a frugal sense to get more *efficiency* from the engine, or in a performance sense to get more *power* output (or a little of both).

You feel like maybe you don't have the skills for the job (or task) you've been given.

E.g. You can write software. You get a job. You google a lot. You worry that the other programmers probably don't google so much. You feel insecure.
