    When this projection of their sense of incompetence fails to take care of whatever has triggered it, the negative energy of the inferior function takes the form of critical self-judgment. Introverted Feeling types become focused on their own incompetence, extending it both backward and forward in time and including the world at large in their conclusion. In the words of one INFP:

    I become overwhelmed by an awareness that I am totally incompetent at everything I do, that I always have been and always will be�and that the whole world knows it! The truth of this is beyond doubt. I am mortified at not recognizing this before, and of compounding the offense by acting as if I were competent. I am unable to verbalize my despair to others for fear I will make a fool of myself by acknowledging my former ignorance of my true lack of ability.
    Just re-read this again. I'd say, for the most part I'm back at equilibrium again and have found a nicer niche for my inferior Te. But, man oh man did this all ring true to some years of my life. I think I let that insecurity override me for far too long.

    I think I should see if my local library has this book.
