 Larch is for lack of confidence. It is the remedy to use when taking an exam to calm the nerves and give confidence. It can be used in any situation where failure may occur and the thought of failure is creating more chance and opportunity for it to happen.

 Those who lack confidence and are in need of Larch are the type of people who compare themselves with those who have achieved success. They look at others and do not consider that they are as good or as capable as those around them. Built into the Larch personality type is an expectation of failure: this means that they never really give 100% because there is no reason to do so as it will be a waste of time and only create a higher level of despondency when the inevitable failure occurs. This mental attitude also leads to hesitancy and an overly passive attitude that also contributes to a lack of self-belief. The Larch folk will look at others and consider that they are much more capable of succeeding than themselves and therefore in any competitive situation put themselves immediately at a disadvantage.
