Desk Inferiority Complex is related to office envy and desk envy. A patient who suffers from desk inferiority complex will be working in a company where the desks are so small he or she believes they can't work properly and will need a larger desk. The disease manifests itself only after the patient has noticed that other companies have larger, strikingly bigger, massive, gleaming desks with satisfied looking workers sitting behind. According to Adler, all office workers experience feelings of desk inferiority as children having seen their father's big desks and spend the rest of their lives trying to compensate for those feelings.
John's desk inferiority complex has become so bad that he is now trying to use two desks with the pedestal between his legs.
