Hello
Could you please tell me what you call a person who is suffering from a complex (psychological disorder)?
Give me an adjective if possible!

    "[A] neurotic," perhaps. But there are many different recognized complexes and different kinds of neurosis, so it's hard to make a blanket statement.

    I don't think there is a word in English for what you want to say (and I'm not altogether sure what you do want to say). Can you explain what kind of behaviour this person displays? Are you talking loosely about a difficult person, about whom we could say "he thinks the world owes him a living" οr "he has a chip on his shoulder"?

    If you mean that the person is really suffering from a disorder that has been diagnosed by a professional, we would need to know which specific complex you are talking about.

    A person who holds a grudge against others...
    And a person who wants to show that they are superior to (superiority complex) or more knowledgable than others.....
