Inferiority complex refers to a strong and pervasive belief that one is not as good as other people. It is often an exaggerated sense of feelings of inadequacy and insecurity that may result in being defensive or anxious; a condition that develops when a person is unable to compensate for normal inferiority feelings. According to Adler, Inferiority complex is the condition one experiences when overwhelmed by feelings of inferiority instead of being motivated toward success by those feelings.
