A. Background of The Study
Every individual has problems in their life. The problem that appears is complex. Most of them related to human psychological condition. One of the basic problems of individual is feeling inferiority. This emerges as the result of psychological and social weakness. Inferiority feeling also arises for imperfection in doing something. Those feelings include subjective feeling, which is experienced by people because of their social disabilities.
Thus, human beings try to compensate for their inferiority feeling by striving to overcome their feeling. Inferiority feeling influences human being life style. In other words, inferiority determines life style involving how people attempt to defeat their weakness. Commonly, individual applies their inferiority in social life. However, they tend to be motivated to overcome feeling of inferiority by building relationship with others to get their life’s goal.
Sometimes, the goal of life will become difficult thing to be reached since there are many problems in human life. The problems in human life cannot be separated from thinking, feeling, and acting. Those are actually bringing up influence for the literary work. Therefore, literature closely related to psychology in human being including experiences facing the life.

Martin Luther King and Tavis Film Analysis

...In the PBS film by Tavis Smiley, “MLK: A Call to Conscience,” Tavis explored Martin Luther King’s stand against the Vietnam War and the influence of his legacy today. Tavis reached out to scholars, associates and personal friends of Dr. King who gave personal accounts of their feelings toward MLK and his movements. These events will also be supported by evidence from two other films, “Eyes on the Prize: Episode 4” which profiled MLK’s last year prior to his assassination, and “The Assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr.” which provided additional details in regard to the FBI’s potential conspiracy against Dr. King. This film was chosen as my main source for analysis due to a personal connection with how I relate to Dr. King and his convictions for what he believes in. Just as Dr. King described Americans becoming complacent to the injustices of justice in his speech, we also tend to become complacent about why we celebrate this brilliant leader’s life. His drive and determination should be modeled by every American citizen, especially by those in successive generations who have been denied their dreams. I also intend to highlight why his ideology could live and thrive in today’s policy. The central message of this documentary builds on when Dr. King gave his speech, “A Call to Conscience” April 4, 1967 at the Riverside Church in New York City. As Vincent Harding, a close friend and author of this speech would explain the one thing that never changed during...

...After serving 15 years in the US Marines and getting out, I feel that the Veterans Administration VA should do more and be more veteran friendly. While getting my school started I have seen and been thru so much red tape that some time my head just spins form all the waiting and long times . Doing more for our veterans Is the US Government doing all that it can for the recently discharged veteran’s. There are many young men and women that have served their country with pride and sacrifice that the average American will never know. We should never have to be put thru a system that is backlog worse than anything we have to offer. I feel that there needs to be a new system put into place and if that means that the government must give up this job to an outside company, it will only make the system that the veterans use better. Having to deal with the VA Having had to deal with and go thru the VA myself I can for one say that the system has many errors that need to be addressed. One is the long wait time for something as simple and being seen by a doctor. Two getting paperwork that the Military messed up corrected. Ways the system could change I know that by me writing this the system will never change, and I also know that right now that government has so much money tied into the VA that things will never change and the only ones that will suffer will be the veterans. Conclusion I would hope that one day there will be a system in place that will be more......

Martin Luther King Speech

...Taylor Floyd Beatty English III 9/8/13 “Letter from Birmingham City Jail: Analysis” On April 16, 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. wrote a letter known as the “Letter from Birmingham City Jail.” The letter, as well as his jailing, was a result of white clergy who disagreed with non-violent protesting to end racial segregation between the everyday African American and white American. In this letter, King launches the reader into a journey of emotions by introducing a different point of view to the eight clergy authors of “A Call to Unity.” Through use of selective diction to exhibit powerful imagery, King highlights why he felt so strongly towards the situation at hand. King displays an agonizing and heart shredding scene when he writes "when you have seen vicious mobs lynch your mothers and fathers at will and drown your brothers and sisters at whim" (King 124-126). The reader's mind quickly absorbs the sorrowful diction "vicious mobs," "lynch," and "drown" to create an image equivalent to one from a scene of a horror story where colored men and women of all ages are hung and drowned against their will for, simply, being colored. While white men and their families lived in a blossoming world of fantasy where they reigned superior, day to day, a colored family was terrorized in a nightmare. Painful and traumatizing, this incident was only a snapshot of the dreadful film each of them suffered through. King portrays an astounding visual image in an abstract point of view when...

Internalized Inferiority

... understand the harms of internalized racism it is necessary to first examine its origins. Malcom X describes instances when he was young where whites would talk about the perplexing behavior of “niggers” with a casual air and complete disregard for his presence (Malcom X 32). Additionally, certain whites Malcom X met for the first time would look him up and down as if “examining a fine colt, or a pedigreed pup” (Malcom X 32). Malcom X’s exposure to such degrading talk and behavior led him to perceive and begin to unintentionally internalize a sense of racial inferiority. In her memoir, Derricotte quotes a passage from her mother’s book in which she describes how she and her siblings were not allowed to play on the community playground when they were little and resorted to playing in the dangerous local lumberyard instead (Derricotte 115). Although restriction from a playground is a more subtle form of exposure to racism than hearing others comment on the behavior of niggers, as Malcom X experienced, it still impressed upon Derricotte’s mother and her siblings a sense of racial inferiority. By citing her mother’s experience in her writing, Derricotte aims to make other blacks in America aware of the origins of internalized racism so that they may identify its sources and its effects in their own lives. If initial exposure to racial prejudice were to occur at a time when an individual had an established sense of self and pride for his or her racial identity, he or she......

Inferiority Complex

... methods of healing in the world today result in complete mental healing? What is true healing and health and where is the revelation of Christ in such healing? I was born in South Korea and attended my schooling years there as well as having experienced working life there. Through work I met many people and have observed 5 that while some people had positive and progressive images and vision there were others who were always without strength and self-esteem and who were burdened by negative thoughts. I too have agonized over the same problems that many Korean workers worry about. My experience has taught me that even though people may be in the same situation, their thoughts and responses to the situation may significantly change the result. This is how and why I decided to use these experiences as the foundation for this dissertation. I am not a psychologist, nor a doctor; I simply wish to state my opinion as a student of theology. This is the reason for the situation of Korean workers being discussed in this dissertation with especial focus on the chief culprit for these kinds of mental ‘hurts’ which is ‘inferiority complex’. 2. Research Problem Due to Korea being a country of little land, the people naturally tend to gravitate towards comparing themselves or engaging in competition with each other. More especially, Korean mothers may make certain mistakes by comparing their children to their friend’s children which may serve as a source of stress. The self-esteem of...

Martin Luther King Speech and Letter Analysis

... readers, rather, he has brought those non-religious into the fold by addressing concerns that fall outside of the intuitionally religious, but still within the same paradigms academia is based upon. Perhaps what it most brilliant about the “Letter From Birmingham Jail” is that, in capturing his initially intended audience’s attention by appealing to their traditions and foundations, he has made them unconsciously “stay tuned” into the powerful and more simply arguments based on emotion that are to follow. In this way, he has not only reached out to embrace all audiences, but in the very structure of these varied appeals, has made certain that those whom he most wishes to appeal to are forced to hear the other, more emotional side of the argument as well. In other words, while the ‘American dream’ and the ‘Christian faith’ may have resonated with the audience, the moral force of his speech depended upon the juxtaposition of these structures with the story of racial oppression” (Bridger). This is quite apparent in the very opening lines of the speech in which the foundations for American government as exploited for narrative and rhetorical use. In something of a mockery of the great documents of America, King begins, “Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering...

King Speech Essay

... in the king’s eyes in order for progress to take place. During sessions, the king must see himself as an equal to Lionel; simple tactics such as identifying each other on a personal name basis were used to achieve improvement. Through hard work and a strong friendship, the therapist explored the depth of Albert’s problem and guided the king toward conquering his speech impediment. By the closing scene of the movie, King George VI was ready to define the nation’s stance on Germany and the war. As the scene begins with Bertie and Lionel in the broadcasting room, it seems rather small and calming. After Lionel opens the windows for circulation, the viewers can see that there was a customized podium for Bertie; all décor was to provide the king with comfort. With only twenty seconds until broadcasting, Lionel gives one last breath of confidence to Bertie; “Forget about everything else and just say it to me. Say it to me, as a friend” (King’s Speech). Before Bertie begins his speech, the camera is directed toward the script in his quivering hands. The pages were marked specifically and tactfully to provide Bertie with notes on where to pause and when to emphasize. Slowly the blinking light switches off and Bertie stares nervously into the microphone; his hands are shaking, throat is swelling, and neck is constricting. People internationally were tuned in, listening closely with growing apprehension to the silence. Lionel calmly looks at Bertie and tells him to breath...

King Arhtur - Film Review

... movie they are enemies of Arthur and his men. After Arthur and his men rescue Guinevere from Honorius, Merlin tells him that they are not enemies but allies. Lancelot and Guinevere are often seen looking longingly at each other in the movie but are never together in the biblical sense. Cerdic, leader of the Saxons, kills Tristan and Lancelot in battle. Guinevere is by Lancelot’s side as he dies. Arthur yells out to God and asks why Lancelot’s life was taken instead of his own. Arthur, Guinevere, Galahad, Gawain and Bors return to their home. Arthur and Guinevere are married by Merlin. Merlin then proclaims Arthur to be their king. Arthur vows to protect and unite all Britons. The dissimilarities did not detract from the myth. I enjoyed reading and watching two different versions of King Arthur. His character traits were the same in both. I would recommend this film to others. Even if you do not believe in the myth of King Arthur, you can relate to all that he fought for: Love, honor, freedom and justice. Williams 4 Works Cited: Rosenberg, Donna.

George Bush Speech Analysis

... Iraq were sponsors and supporters of terrorism calling them the “axis of evil.” American citizens could now freely walk in their streets as the government was on a war against terrorism. Reduction of terrorist attacks provided a healthy environment for living in the United States and peace was restored. The administration of George Bush could be entrusted with their lives as the fear of an imminent attack was eliminated hence the impacts of the speech proved to be encouraging for the Americans. The call made by the president on the joining of arms by different countries to fight terror was rather successful. His goal was to create an international coalition to fighting terrorism, and many countries agreed to the deal. Many countries provided military forces, intelligence resources, diplomatic and economic support for counter-terrorism. Moreover, the hunt for terrorists continued. Global peace was realized and most countries in the world benefitted from the collaboration. The comfort and faith further encouraged the citizens and they could carry out their daily activities without any worry concerning their safety. The United States, together with other foreign agencies, co-operated continuously pre-empting terrorist acts as well as hunting down terrorists. Those were some of the effects that George Bush gave following the 9-11 speech. However, as much as the speech had strong impacts on the American national security, there have been failures as well.

.... Steinbeck also persuades the reader to feel sympathy for George. For example, he calls Lennie a “poor bastard” even when he’s just about to tell him off, Steinbeck is making it clear to the reader that George tells Lennie off for his own good. George is pretty aggressive as when candy tries to get involved in their dream, George is immediately defence “you got nothing to do with us.” His dislike of Curley means he orders Lennie to fight back against him even though this could get them into a lot of trouble. He even starts off defensive when he’s talking to Slim. When Slim comments that it’s unusual that George and Lennie travel together, George snaps at him. He’s often aggressive towards Lennie when he’s frustrated. He’s good at reading people. He realises that Curley’s a character to avoid, George hates Curley immediately, because he’s aggressive towards them. He fears that he’s “gonna tangle with that bastard.” He doesn’t like Curley’s wife “I seen ‘em poison before.” He warns Lennie to stay away from her as he senses that she’ll cause trouble for them. He quickly trusts slim, and tells him about what happened in Weed. He says “you wouldn’t tell?, ’course you wouldn’.” The dream keeps him going, George isn’t in control of his own life. He has to find work wherever he can and work for people he doesn’t respect, like Curley. He also can’t control Lennie’s unpredictable behaviour. George often recites the dream just to keep Lennie happy, but sometimes he gets so......
