Inferiority Complex Symptoms
1) Demeaning Others: Those with an inferiority complex feel the constant need to prove themselves better than others to boost their self-esteem. When they fail, they tend to belittle others' efforts so that they can feel better about themselves. In such cases, instead of being socially withdrawn, they may be outspoken to an extent that is rude.
2) Blaming the Universe: Any failure on part of such persons is directly blamed on external factors such as poor luck, bad company, someone else or just their environment in general. They are never able to accept that the failure may have occurred due to a mistake on their part. The whole universe is responsible for their misery and their failure.
3) Sour Grapes: One of the most prominent symptom is the 'sour grapes' attitude. For instance, they may not have been able to perform a certain task at work properly, and if a colleague did it successfully, they would attribute the success to external factors such as help from someone else, or just plain luck. They will never attribute the colleague's success to personal capabilities or merit. This symptom is a way of compensating for the truth, that the colleague may indeed be better at a particular task than them.
4) Extreme Sensitivity: Persons who have an inferiority complex exhibit extreme sensitivity to compliments and criticism. If it is a compliment, they question its genuineness, and if it is criticism, they go on the defense immediately. They do not respond to light humor too well. Also, even if you happen to make a passing comment, they may take it personally.
5) Seeking Attention: Those suffering from an inferiority complex are most likely to be exhibiting attention-seeking behavior around others. For instance, they may be found fishing for compliments from others. However, sometimes, in spite of fishing for compliments, they may not accept them and believe that the person giving them is doing so just because he was asked to. They also tend to resort to other attention-seeking tactics such as aggression and name calling.
6) Fear of Making Mistakes: Such persons also rarely or never admit wrongs, simply because they have a deep fear that making mistakes makes them look bad or foolish to others.
7) Ones who suffer from this problem will resort to any or more than one of the above when confronted with it trying to stay above the accuser by ignoring what is being shown or told to them because of course it is not them, it is everyone else.
yep that describes you perfectly. seek help cupcake.
