My new knowledge about Grandiose Delusional Disorder.


Well-Known Member
I learned that Grandiose Delusional Disorder is closely associated with personality disorders than Schizophrenia.

Delusion of grandeur is not absence of reality, it's an emotional anosognosia sens-self of worth. It's also related to Bipolar Disorder as this delusion is emotional based.

It's just an opinion, it's not peer approved by data.

My opinion that grandiose types of delusions is closely associated with personality disorders, and related to Bipolar Disorder as this delusion is emotional based. Delusional Disorder it self is part of Schizophrenia Spectrum and Other Psychotic Disorders, but grandiose types of delusions is different, because it's more related to Schizotypal Personality Disorder and Narcissistic Personality Disorder, questioning if Narcissistic Personality Disorder should be part of Schizophrenia Spectrum, because it is related to Delusion of granduer with lack of empathy and taking advantage of others. Although Schizotypal Personality Disorder is part of Schizophrenia Spectrum.

I hope you know where I come from with this confusion.
Yup. I know someone with bipolar and he definitely has Grandiose Delusional Disorder. It seems that it has transitioned to be less of an issue then when l first met them. It's an interesting disorder because it kinda of leaves you hanging to how far it goes with the individual. I have only met one person like this l believe. I am hesitant to discuss it with them. I mean what do you say? " being God is highly over-rated, don't you think".

This all ties together. Lack of empathy. I was a possession in our marriage. My things were his things and not my own. Know it very well. My question is can they truly be aware of being grandiose? He may have a schizotypal disorder personality. This seems to be a reaccuring theme in my life.

Do people with delusions of grandeur actually believe what they claim or do they just say things they don't believe to get people to stay away from them?
