    'Inferior' as an adjective has two nouns associated with it.

    An 'inferior' is someone or something of lower status or value than something/someone else. "He is my inferior."

    'Inferiority' is the state of being inferior. "His inferiority is what separates us."

    The same applies to 'superior' and 'superiority'.

    The noun is the same as the adjective (i.e. an inferior person is an inferior).

    –noun

    10. a person inferior to another or others, as in rank or merit.

    11. Also called subscript. Printing. a letter, number, or symbol written or printed low on a line of text. Compare superior (def. 12).

    I'm pretty sure you have to pair that word with a noun. I don't think "inferior" is a noun in any sense of the word. If anything it should be used as an adjective (when paired with a noun) or a verb since "inferior" is a type of action or behavior.

  • Inferiority.

    I think in this case, inferior could be the noun too.

    If you don't like that, there's always these:

    Subordinate

    Lessor

    Junior

    Peon

    Substitute
