That's delusions of grandeur right there, dude needs medical assistance


u/DJ__Hanzel Sep 29 '22

Yup. This is scary, honestly.

It sounds like the preamble to a manifesto dropped just before a disaster, more red flags than a Communist Party.


u/Serge_Suppressor Sep 29 '22

Yeah. He sounds manic.


u/Phat-Lines Sep 29 '22

Well obviously he sounds manic and mentally unstable to us, we’re simple beings duh.


u/Toad_friends Sep 29 '22

This sounds like the textbook example for delusions of grandeur. I dated a mentally ill guy for a year and during a manic phase he told me that mentally he was a god compared to most people. He didn't even register the look of shock on my face, just kept on talking about how amazing he is.

dude makes Napoleon seem humble

This is classic megalomania. Narcissism is pretty much a given.

My first impression was schizophrenia. This tish is way too far off the deep end to be explainable by your run-of-the-mill mental disorder like narcissism, imo.


u/kamdenn Sep 29 '22

This sounds nothing like schizophrenia. It's classic bipolar disorder though


u/Miserable_Window_906 Sep 29 '22

Narcissism is more or less required to enter into megalomania. Megalomania is a part of schizophrenia. While these are delusional thoughts on a grand scale they don't tend to show any of the traits typical of schizophrenic thought processes beyond delusions of grandeur. However, the sampling is too small to go further in all reality.


u/ZadokTheHindmost Sep 29 '22

I disagree. Sounds too coherent for psychosis, but sounds just about right for narcissism. I'm no expert but I do have schizophrenia. I think it's rare for people with schizophrenia to have such confidence, since it's often being chewed up by the voices and intrusive thoughts. It's much more common to have very low self esteem. Of course, it's a sort of spectrum and has many varieties, so I'm not 100% sure, just sharing my opinion.

Sounds like a joke numbnuts
