“The Aspect of Inferiority Complex”




The purpose of this paper is to provide a deeper understanding and knowledge of the aspect of Inferiority Complex. The paper aims to relate the human state of having inferiority complex to psychology and to inform the readers of the large-scale effects of this status to the personal, social, mental, and emotional health of a person’s well-being. The paper would dwell into the topic by defining what inferiority complex is, its symptoms, possible causes, possible effects, and its impact on both a personal and community level. The paper also aims to provide an analysis of the topic and why it is considered a problem. The research will highlight the root causes if inferiority complex. It will also highlight the psychological effect of the topic to the person or persons involved including the behavior, personality, attitude, and thought patterns of the people inflicted with the problem and how they affect and interact with the society. The research also covers the health-related implications of the topic. The paper would also tackle how to prevent the problem from inflicting people and also possible measures for recovery for those with inferiority complex. The research hopes to answer questions regarding why certain people show signs of an anti-social, introvert, or shy nature. The research would by dynamic in its approach by applying many forms of approaches namely: behavioral, humanistic, sociocultural, and a moral approach with all these relating psychology with inferiority complex. At the end of the paper, the research would allow and enable the readers a deeper insight on the topic at hand and also provide a comparison to the alter-ego of the topic which is the human state of superiority…...

As expressed by Afifi and Guerrero (2000:170): 'There is a long history of research establishing the importance that individuals placeon connectedness… individuals' needs for initiating, developing and maintaining social ties especially close ones, is reflected in a litany of studies and a host of theories.' The mere presenceof another has been shown to be arousing and motivating and this in turn influences our behaviour-a process termed compresence (Burgoon et al., 1996). We behave differently in the company of another person from when alone. When we meet others we are 'onstage' and so give a performance that differs from how we behave 'offstage'. We also enjoy interacting, and indeed the act of engaging in facilitative interpersonal communication has been shown to contribute to positive changes in emotional state (Gable and Shean, 2000). While our dealings with others can sometimes be problematic or even contentious, we also seek, relish, and obtain great reward from social interaction. Close Relationships Sometimes Mask Poor...

Military Complex

...Military Complex Kelvin Hugley Dr. Tanya Sharpe SOC 300 June 5, 2013   Military Industrial Complex is a phrase used to signify the relationship between government forces and defense-minded organizations. This union can produce benefits for both war planners receiving the tools necessary for waging an effective war while furthering political interest abroad while defense contractors are the recipients of lucrative deals.("What is military,") The term Military Industrial Complex was coined by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in his farewell address in 1961. Great and sustained spending for defense and war he warned created powerful groups that could disastrously harm the nations future.(Turse, 03) Causing harm is exactly what they did. Third World countries would receive the assistance of developed countries with the financing of its wars and in return would have to grant certain privileges to the countries that aided them. Oftentimes giving over control of rich soil, marine ports and even governments. After many years these countries would have to negotiate for the rights of their own land. For example, the United States was able to gain control over the Philippine Islands, Guam and Puerto Rico after the Spanish-American war. America then placed military bases the aforementioned countries. Developing countries are the main recipients of the arms sales. Developing nations continue to be the primary focus of foreign arms sales activity by weapons......

Complex Numbers

...interpretation of a complex number. Since a complex number z = x + iy is comprised of two real numbers it is natural to consider a plane in which to place a complex number. We shall see that there is a close connection between complex numbers and two-dimensional vectors. In the second part of this Block we introduce an alternative form, called the polar form, for representing complex numbers. We shall see that the polar form is particularly advantageous when multiplying and dividing complex numbers. 9 6 x know what a complex number is Prerequisites Before starting this Block you should . . . 8 y understand how to use trigonometric functions cos θ, sin θ and tan θ z understand what a polynomial function is { possess a knowledge of vectors 7 Learning Outcomes Learning Style After completing this Block you should be able To achieve what is expected of you . . . to . . .  represent complex numbers on an Argand diagram  obtain the polar form of a complex number  multiply and divide complex numbers in polar form  allocate sufficient study time  briefly revise the prerequisite material  attempt every guided exercise and most of the other exercises 1.

Complex Needs

...Holistic Account of Care for a Patient or Client with Complex Needs What are complex needs? Who has them? It could be argued that everyone's needs are complex and as such, complex needs have been difficult to define (Rosengard et al., 2007). This essay intends to use literature to outline a systematic and holistic approach to care of a patient's complex needs. The nursing process and its framework of assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation will be utilised to provide a patient centred approach (Castledine, 2011). Rankin and Regan (2004) described complex needs as being a framework rather than a label that determines service eligibility. The needs of people include breadth (range of need) and depth (severity); these factors have to be taken into account when providing holistic care. Holistic care is defined as an approach which takes into consideration the physical, mental and social factors in an illness, rather than just the disease itself (Martin, 2010). The person this essay will centre around gave informed consent to have their notes consulted with the intention to write this essay, in line with the Nursing and Midwifery Council's (NMC) The Code (2008). There are seven elements to informed consent; competence to decide, voluntariness to decide, disclosure of information, recommendation of a plan, understanding of the disclosure and recommendation, decision of the plan and authorising of the plan (Beauchamp & Childress, 1994 pp. 145-146).

Throughout these notes I will make occasional references to results stated in these notes. The aim of my notes is to provide a few examples of applications of the residue theorem. The main goal is to illustrate how this theorem can be used to evaluate various types of integrals of real valued functions of real variable. Following Sec. 10.1 of Cain’s notes, let us recall that if C is a simple, closed contour and f is analytic within the region bounded by C except for finitely many points z0 , z1 , . . . , zk then k f (z)dz = 2πi C j=0 Resz=zj f (z), where Resz=a f (z) is the residue of f at a. 2 2.1 Evaluation of Real-Valued Integrals. Definite integrals involving trigonometric functions 2π We begin by briefly discussing integrals of the form F (sin at, cos bt)dt. 0 (1) Our method is easily adaptable for integrals over a different range, for example between 0 and π or between ±π.

Complex Interdependence

...Complex Interdependence In 1970s, a new perspective known as transnational relations arose to question realism key assumptions of state as main and the only actor of world politics. This theory gave a new analytical framework to understand the international relations which was contrary to the state centric paradigm of realism. With complex interdependence as its central concept, this theoretical analysis advanced “synthesis of liberal + realist perspectives by constructing a way of looking at world politics and also the idea of institutionalism to foster cooperation”. It is asked how under conditions of complex interdependence world politics would be different than under realist conditions means this analysis ask to see “ what realism overlooked”. The phenomenon of Interdependence is not new; states have always been interdependent on each other for their economic functions and especially for security purposes. We have seen the complicated interdependence among states in the alliance system to achieve their political ends before First World War. The earliest example of interdependence comes from Norman Angell’s “The great illusion (1910) when he said the economic interdependence will minimize the occurrence of war on the basis of cost-benefit analysis.” Countries are dependent on each other for trade and transaction, they interact globally e.g. flow of money, goods, people and messages across international boundaries but all transactions among countries are not characterized......

Internalized Inferiority

...Elias Van Sickle Narratives of Identity Professor Valcik 23 October 2014 Internalized Inferiority An individual’s conception of societal norms and beliefs is developed over time through the observation of and interaction with others. In modern times, one might come to understand feminine beauty as thin rather than voluptuous through exposure to the magazines, television and other media outlets that display images of “beautiful” thin models. Simply because a belief is widespread does not make it true or moral; the exclusive portrayal of the thin woman as beautiful is an extremely narrow definition of beauty that is far from true and may be very damaging: it can negatively impact women’s self worth and leads many to attempt to change their identities to conform to society’s perverted projection of a beautiful woman’s appearance. Similarly, in the past, the widespread internalization of the false and immoral belief of white superiority and black inferiority had numerous destructive effects on blacks. Toi Derricotte, a light skinned black women who recounts her experience with racism in the memoir The Black Notebooks, and Malcom X whose life story and transformation into a racial leader are told in The Autobiography of Malcom X, both recognize the deleterious effects of internalized racism on themselves and other blacks; however, the nature of their efforts to address its harms differ, reflecting their respective visions for societal betterment.

...The Basic Parts The Basic Parts There are just five basic parts in a radio frequency communication system. These are: * Antenna * Amplifier * Filter * Mixer * Source These five parts are then put together to do one of two basic functions: transmit or receive. The name of the resulting device is a radio. The radio also may go by many other names based on marketing considerations or its specific role in the wireless network. A radio is used to send and receive a signal that flows through the air as a series of electromagnetic waves. Radios can take on many different forms. As such, it is not always easy to identify them. When transmitting or receiving, the goal is to produce a perfect sine wave, of the exact size required, at only one frequency. A block diagram of the basic parts looks like the following. For a transmitter: This diagram shows a conceptual layout of a typical transmitter. Included in it are six elements. They are, in order: source, amplifier, source, mixer, filter, high-power amplifier, and antenna. For a transmitter, the signal is generated by the source. The mixer changes the frequency of the signal. The filter removes undesired frequencies. The amplifier increases the signal. The antenna transforms the electrical current into a radio wave. The other amplifier provides the electrical signal. It also feeds into the mixer. For a receiver: This diagram shows a conceptual layout of a typical receiver. Included in it are......

Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Elvis Presley were early rock-and-roll greats. - Simple 3. Teenagers loved the new music, but it disturbed many parents. - Compound 4. As much as the music itself, it was the sexually suggestive body language of the performers that worried the older generation. – Complex 5. The social turmoil that marked the 1960’s influenced many performers, and some began to use their music as a vehicle for protest. - Compound Exercise 31.7: Circle the simple subjects and verbs in the following passage. Place one line under each independent clause and two lines under each dependent clause. (Recall that as independent clause can stand on its own as a complete sentence.) Many argue that the blues and jazz are the first truly American musical forms. With its origins in slave narratives, the blues took root during the 1920’s and 1930’s as African-America composers, musicians and singers performed in the cabarets and clubs of Harlem. Jazz, however, has is origins in New Orleans. Today, we can still appreciate the music of Bessie Smith, Duke Ellington, and B.B. King. Rock and roll is also a distinctively American form of music. Our country’s first “rock star” was without a doubt Elvis Presley, who emerged in the nation’s airwaves in the mid-1950’s with such hits as Heartbreak Hotel, Don’t Be Cruel, and All Shook...

Oedipal Complex

...Religion as a response to repressed guilt Freud came up with a physiological metaphor called the Oedipal complex. This complex is where Freud believes the feeling of guilt to stem from and also believes that we respond to this with religion. The oedipal complex is derived from a play called Oedipus Rex in which the son Laius kills his father, Oedipus , in order to have a relationship with his mother . The Oedipal complex basically refers to the unconscious desire of a son to have a relationship with his mother. Freud believed that this complex began at the phallic stage of a child’s physco –sexual development in which the source of libido pleasure was in a different erogenous zone of the infant’s body. At the phallic stage Freud believes that boys feel an unconscious desire to displace the father and therefore feel ambivalent towards him, as they fear genital mutilation due to several reasons such as the loss of the mothers breasts. At this stage boys have an unconscious love affair with their mother and it becomes the duty of the parents to act upon this incestuous urge. Parents must act on the incestuous urge as if they do not it could cause society to break down and threatens the family unit. A balance must be found and the urge must be controlled. The way in which parents do this is by introjection of their egos into the child; this means that the child absorbs the parents values, personality and characteristics and mold themselves to be similar. When a parent......

Complex Life

...Astronomy 101 Midterm Professor Gonzalez 2/10/16 Complex Life What led to complex life as we know it? Scientists have always been baffled with how it happened, because there are so many things that contributed in both big and small ways. The earth had to let its Primordial soup boil for millions of years, just for the slight chance that life would be created. Many things contributed to the creation of complex life but there are a few ways that really shaped how we know life today. The most treasured source of life today is pretty obvious. We are all made of water and we need it to live our daily lives. Meanwhile while the Earth was cooling, asteroids and comets collided with earth, transferring materials that they were made of. Luckily enough one of those common materials happened to be Ice, which eventually thawed and became the oceans that we know today, which over time with a combination of sunlight and other organic materials that asteroids brought. This gave rise to probiotic cells only after about a billion years of simmering in the Primordial soup. Now after that, how did the cells become complex life? Well another abundant resource we treasure today is good old oxygen. Oxygen did not show on Earth until about 2.5 Ga. Cyanobacteria introduced oxygen to the ocean, which reacted with the iron and created iron oxide. Once the iron was used up and could no longer create iron oxide, oxygen was released, forming a huge portion of our atmosphere....

Oedipus Complex

...Date: 21 February 2012 Write an essay about the Oedipus complex. Your essay should explore the history of the concept, its development in psychoanalytic thinking and its wider implications. You should illustrate your understanding with detailed examples from your work setting and/or placement. Essay submitted for the award of MSc in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy at Birkbeck College, University of London Introduction This paper attempts to trace the evolution of Freud’s concept of the Oedipus complex within psychoanalysis. One case will be considered in detail to illustrate relevant theoretical formulations focussing mainly on the work of Freud, Klein, Britton and Bion. The wider implications of the Oedipus complex will also be considered before I conclude. History of the Oedipus complex and Freud’s theoretic evolution Freud used the term Oedipus complex to describe a boy's feelings of desire for his mother and hostility towards his father which he regarded as a universal event of early childhood. The term is derived from the Greek myth of Oedipus who unwittingly killed his father and married his mother. In a letter to Fliess dating back to 1897, Freud (1954) attributes these ideas to his self analysis and indirectly to the Greek myth as presented in the popular Sophocles’ play ‘Oedipus Rex’. During the late 1890s Freud, theorised that fantasies built around the Oedipus complex were the primary cause of hysteria and other neurotic......

...Inferiority complex An abnormal or pathological state which, due to the tendency of the complex to draw unrelated ideas into itself, leads the individual to depreciate himself, to become unduly sensitive, to be too eager for praise and flattery, and to adopt a derogatory attitude toward others. ers. every human being is born with inferiority feelings. For physical weakness and defects in some parts of body will contribute to emotional problems. I have undergone two times of liver transplant. One is when I was 13 and the second time is at 19. Since my first transplant, I had a big scar on my abdomen. I used to think that I was a weaker person because I had less energy and easier to get tired compared to other normal people. In this connection, I always think that I am weaker than others. I feel inferior and have low self-confidence. These are some feelings and personality arose from psychological inferiority.,%20Timothy%20-%20Inferiority%20Complex.pdf The My life is always connected to these previous unpleasant experiences.
