This article discusses the relationships among inferiority feelings, coping strategies, and living adaptation strategies. The method of research was a question- naire-based survey; T-test, stepwise, and logistic regression techniques were employed. The purposes of this study were to discover the causes of inferiority feelings in vocational college students, analyze the interaction between different kinds of inferiority feelings, and provide alternatives to be used in counseling students. The results of this survey indicate that most significant among the students' inferiority feelings were those related to coping and living adaptation strategies. By using a stepwise regression method, this research further developed predictive models for testing such key factors as emotional stability, academic esteem, supportability, emotion avoidance, cognitive regulation, and problem solving skill. The test results demonstrate that the factors of supportability, emotional stability, and academic esteem could be effective predictive variables to the empirical data.

Keywords:Inferiority feelings, coping strategies, living adaptation, regression model
