    Default How delusional are you?

    In my opinion, one of the most remarkable aspects of humans is our ability to lie to ourselves. We are the both shady salemen and naive customer, knowing our own thoughts and desires more intricately than anyone else and in the most effective position to tell ourselves exactly what we want to hear.

    In what way are you delusional, and how deep can it run? or do you think you aren't, and why?

    I like to think that I base my decisions on logical thought process, but end up simply justifying logically emotional reactions to most situations in life.

    I'm an Ni user. We're all deluded on some level. Esp since my Se doesn't work very well and never seems to step in with relevant data to countermand my fantastical mental constructs.

    Delusion

    Definition

    A delusion is an unshakable belief in something untrue. These irrational beliefs defy normal reasoning, and remain firm even when overwhelming proof is presented to dispute them. Delusions are often accompanied by hallucinations and/or feelings of paranoia, which act to strengthen confidence in the delusion. Delusions are distinct from culturally or religiously based beliefs that may be seen as untrue by outsiders.
    This thread is a total failure. Sorry.

    Anyways...
    -------------------

    Everyone is delusional. It's a human trait we all seem to have. We lie to ourselves about certain things so we can keep our integrity intact. But, humans often go against their very nature and try to be true to themselves. This is honorable and difficult.

    If one is truly delusional, they will not be able to tell you on a scale of 1-5 just how delusional they are.

    The last part of the definition seems strange to me. How would a delusion cease to be delusional merely as a result of how many people share it? I wonder if that is a politically correct statement or if there is some kind of reasoning behind it.

    Wouldn't it be perfect if the definition of delusional was somewhat delusional by nature.
