Sample text

As we will show later, not only ‘organ inferiorities’ and social conditions, but also the parents’ erroneous educational style can make a child feel insecure and inferior. A pampered child can develop inferiority feelings, although initially, she may become accustomed to the idea of having power over her parents who are always prepared to remove all obstacles from her way. But she never learns to struggle by herself or to delay her wants and needs. It is not love and care she receives, but only the advantages of a parasitic existence.

These behaviours are of course not inherent to the female sex, but the loophole of a girl who has learned that ‘male’ behaviour does not lead to the desired outcome. A boy who detects that willpower makes his parents succumb to his wishes will develop in the line of dominance, and a girl whose parents give her attention when she is weak will tend to use ‘a woman’s arms’ when dealing with difficult situations. These circumstances can lead to two different manifestations of striving of superiority: the striving for power per se, and the striving for prestige or significance.

And this is the function of the neurotic symptom: to avoid feelings of inferiority, to achieve superiority and to maintain a false sense of security. When people suffer from inferiority feelings they tend to be especially sensitive to the manifestations of others; their distorted perception makes them interpret comments of others as if they were real or imaginary denigrations. A person with neurotic disposition is less able to interact with other people in a natural, spontaneous way. Quite on the contrary, in order to avoid more inferiority feelings, they try to attain triumph over others.
