Error importing numpy even though I installed it properly

  algorithmic-trading, numpy, python, windows

I am using a module called investpy, and numpy is a dependency of it. I tried running pip install investpy, which installed all of the dependencies (or so it says). However, when I try running

import numpy

or

import investpy

, I am faced with this error:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:UserskakorOneDriveDesktopMLnumpy__init__.py", line 124, in <module>
    from numpy.__config__ import show as show_config
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'numpy.__config__'

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:UserskakorOneDriveDesktopMLstockscreener.py", line 1, in <module>
    import numpy
  File "C:UserskakorOneDriveDesktopMLnumpy__init__.py", line 129, in <module>
    raise ImportError(msg)
ImportError: Error importing numpy: you should not try to import numpy from
        its source directory; please exit the numpy source tree, and relaunch
        your python interpreter from there.

I’m really confused as to why this is happening, because as far as I know, I correctly installed numpy. Furthermore, this is really weird because, if I go to the python directory in cmd and run import numpy, it works perfectly.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
