    A delusional person would not believe him/herself to be delusional.

    Therefor, I am never and have never been delusional.

    my definition--one's willingness to accept objectifiable reality despite it's negative (or positive, possibly) implications about one's self.

    i am asking how delusional people think they are, there was no supposition of accuracy aside from self perception, but i think that's pretty obvious

    Ni gut feelings are indescribable crap load of bulls. You have no proof for why you might feel that way or are certain something will happen, but happen they do. After a while, it seems unlikely to have all occurred by chance. If there's no "reasonable" scientific explanations for it, what else can you resort to but the delusional ones?

    My Si does make delusions remarkably harder for me to get than most people.

    However, I voted 2 because it's harder to bore myself to death when I'm slightly delusional.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    Being the most handsome and intelligent man on earth I am certain that I am never delusional.


    But seriously, objective reality is a nice goal but only a goal, I think it is beyond our abilities to know objective truth but we can certainly strive for it.

    I'm always scheming something up in the lab.

    I have plans.

    In what way are you delusional, and how deep can it run? or do you think you aren't, and why?
    It is the Ego that creates delusion.

    It is true consciousness that perceives the deception of the Ego.

    How conscious are you?
