The Seven Signs Of Inferiority Complex

It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak up and remove all doubt" is a coined expression which provides an apt description of those with an inferiority complex.

Psychologist Dan Hamachek has outlined the seven signs of inferiority complex and they are as follows:

1) sensitivity to criticism - people tend to perceive commentary or analysis as personal attack.

2) inappropriate response to flattery - some individuals are desperate to hear anything good about themselves and will be constantly fishing for compliments.

3) hypercritical attitude - they took hard for the flaws or shortcomings of others to try to convince them that they really aren't so bad after all.

4) tendency toward blaming - several people project their perceived weaknesses into others to lessen the pain of feeling inferior.

5) feelings of persecution as to avoid personal responsibility for their failure.

6) negative feelings about competition - because deep down they believe they can't win which is a clear evidence of total fiasco or disappointment.

7) tendency toward seclusiveness and timidity - they believe speaking up will only provide an embarrassing demonstration of their dullness and stupidity.
