Now, tally up your answers to find out which shadow complex you have. Remember, this quiz is just a tool for self-reflection.

If you answered mostly As, you have a “Savior Complex”

This complex stems from a deep need to feel important or validated, and may be rooted in early childhood experiences of feeling powerless or neglected. As a result, you feel a strong need to save others from their problems, even at your own expense. But remember, you don’t have to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders. Sometimes, the greatest act of heroism is allowing others to save themselves.

If you answered mostly Bs, you have a “Persecution Complex”

That feeling, like everyone’s out to get you, even when they’re not, is the persecution complex whispering in your ear. It’s often caused by past traumas or a deep-seated fear of rejection. It makes you hyper-aware and overly sensitive to criticism and negative feedback.Every comment, every glance, feels like it’s loaded with hidden meaning, ready to detonate your fragile sense of security. And you constantly second-guess every interaction, searching for signs of danger where there might be none. But the Universe isn’t conspiring against you; it’s just your mind’s way of trying to protect you from getting hurt again.

If you answered mostly Cs, you have an “Inferiority Complex”

No matter what you do, you struggle to feel good enough. You’re convinced everyone else has it all together, while you’re left feeling like you’re missing the mark at every turn. But believe us when we say that that’s just your inferiority complex making you feel this way. It’s like a tangled knot of emotions, rooted in this deep-seated belief that you’re somehow less than others. So to compensate, you’re constantly seeking validation and trying to prove your worth in the eyes of others. But we’re here to tell you that you are so much more than your insecurities, and no matter what that voice in your head says, you’re enough, just as you are.

If you answered mostly Ds, you have a “Casanova Complex”

Constantly seeking validation through romantic conquests, you probably have a deep-seated fear of commitment and intimacy, too. You thrive on the chase, the excitement of new romance, but struggle when it comes to building something lasting. Beneath your charming exterior lies a fear of vulnerability, of letting someone truly know you. And while your adventures make for great stories, deep down, you might crave a connection that goes beyond the temporary thrills of fleeting romance.
