Extempore Speech is also one of the tools to evaluate overall communication and personality of MBA Aspirants hence; it is also equally important and crucial component of MBA admission selection process.
MBA Rendezvous has started series of Extempore Speech Topics which will certainly help you to clear MBA admission selection.

The way one feels is a matter of choice and not compulsion. No one has the power to control the way you feel unless you subordinate that power to someone yourself. The feelings of superiority or inferiority depend not just on external influences but, to a large extent, on the psychological makeup of a person therefore, is controlled by the person himself/herself.

The question of identity is at the heart of the way you feel about yourself. The feeling of superiority and inferiority reside in each human being and they surface depending on the situation one is in. For instance, in an office scenario, a person may feel superior to his colleagues if he/she considers himself/ herself to be more efficient and hardworking than others. 

Reversely, a person may feel inferior to others if he/ she is unable to match the productivity and efficiency levels of others around him/ her. What is central to both these situations is that the person himself/ herself decides how he wants to feel. This is to say that the control of such emotive responses rests with him/ her.

It is fair to say that there is only one person who gets to define who you are- YOU. You have the control of all the choices you make- the way you dress, the way you talk, food preferences, lifestyle choices and so on. It's only when you willingly or unconsciously give the control of your life and your choices to others that you allow yourself to be dependent on others and even be controlled by them. Even this choice is yours.

Both these complexes- superiority and inferiority indicate a lack in a person's development process. Issues in a person's growing up years which remain unresolved even in the later years or an event which may have had a great impact on the person's psyche result in the formation of these complexes.

Inferiority complex also results from insecurity. A person, who is not secure and who does not take pride in himself, is more likely to give 'consent' or the power to others to make him/ her feel inferior. Being vulnerable to influences is in your own hands. If someone does not respect themselves, others are less likely to show any respect to them. 

It is only when you believe in others' assessment of yourself that you give the consent to others to make you feel the way they want you to feel. However, you do have the power to reject the notion. By being secure and confident in your position, feeling positive about your life, self- belief and being honest to yourself are some ways of ensuring that the freedom to be and feel the way you want truly lies in your own hands.

Abraham Lincoln, too, makes the same point when he says, "No man is good enough to govern another man without the other's consent." It is, thus, clear that only you decide how you feel and no one can make you feel anything without your consent.
