As with the other chakras there can be too much or too little energy in this energy center leading to internal and external problems.
An excess of energy here results in insensitivity to others and intolerance to those with less energy. Other issues that arise with excessive energy here are: tendencies toward being judgmental, aggressive, and perfectionistic. Vanity and pride are also very real possibilities as are hatred and anger. These qualities may be openly expressed or they may be repressed. An excess of energy here can also lead to burnout.
A deficit of energy in the solar plexus results in emotional neediness and attention seeking, as well as difficulty putting ideas into action. There may also be a fear of rejection, indecisiveness, lack of confidence and a poor self image. It is not hard to see that this lack of energy can lead to depression. When this center is weak as just described there is a tendency to be very vulnerable to the ideas, thoughts and opinions of others.
