What you don’t want is to get entrapped in an emotional complex. People with emotional complexes are soft targets for all sorts of emotional manipulation and so they are more likely to become pawns of a terrorist agenda. According to the knowledge dispensed by His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi, people mainly suffer from superiority and inferiority complexes. These are formed due to our perceptions, experiences, desires and patterns of emotions. For example, when a complex-free person fails, they experience sorrow. However, someone leaning towards an inferiority complex will not simply feel sorrow when they fail; they’ll feel rejection. If they fail again, the emotional trauma that they go through doubles the pain. When they fail for the third time, all the pain, sadness and feelings of rejection are muddled up to form an inferiority complex. Oftentimes, this complex is duly aided by depression. On the other hand, someone with a particularly strong ego is more prone to developing a superiority complex. Since these complexes are more about people’s thought processes rather than their behaviour, it is not always clear from someone’s behaviour whether they suffer from a superiority or inferiority complex. Someone with a superiority complex may appear to be very humble while somebody with an inferiority complex may seem arrogant.
