vocabulary question

How do you say "insecure", as in the psychological sense? mdbg gives "葸" with no examples. Another dictionary doesn't even have that character. What is "葸" and is it used? And what is "insecure"?

I'm not sure about that character but common ways to say "insecure" (depending on context) are like 没有安全感 (literally no sense of security) or 没有自信 (no self confidence).
