A Message from the Centre for Disturbance

Well, if this is what the book is going to sound like, I don't think it is going to help make me feel less inferior. It probably helped the Practical Psychologists who wrote it, though. And the more jargon and hyperbole they generate, the better they feel.

I was thinking about sending for the book, but I thought better of it. I probably wouldn't be able to understand the book because the authors' minds are clearly are so very superior to my mind.

Tori Lennox said...

I got an inferiority complex just reading the ad....

Bill said...

I think it's a nice suggestion of symptoms you may not have experienced, but can easily add to your repertoire.

Grant Miller said...

I think that book would make me feel inferior.

...which has transformed the lives of thousands, no wonder the world is the way it is ;)

Joel - Yes, they really do sound so pleased with themselves.

Tori - That was probably the idea. And then you would feel compelled to send for the book...

Bill - It is a nice list. Including things like blushing makes sure no one feels left out!

Grant - Even just the ad makes one feel inferior! Imagine how great that book must be.

redkathy - Yes, that is a very astute observation! :)

Inferiority complex causes blushing? It's a telltale sign? Oh man, I am laying off the rouge!

I-I-I'm on the wrong b-b-blog. I have a persecution complex. Oh, I am inferior, too - not saying that ::blush:: - but I prefer to fight that force directly in vain. That would be due to my futility complex. ALTHOUGH I WANT TO ERADICATE THEM FOR EVER. Or forever.

(Are you sure this correspondence is confidential?)

Frogs in my Formula - And also I'm not going to stand in front of a hot oven anymore, it makes my face red! (And the less cooking I do, the less inferior I might feel!)

Max - Oh yes, all correspondence is COMLPLETELY confidential. By which we mean that we will be using the good bits in our next ad.
