    Whether you seem grandiose is irrelevant, whether you actually are is the better question...

    Answer to the question is the same as to the "Are you psychotic" question.

    The fact that you can ask the question means you're likely not. The hallmark of grandiose delusion is unawareness that there is a problem.

    No. Your view of yourself does not seem over-inflated or out of kilter with reality.

    Well, it doesn't have psychosis as part of the mix. So it is better than the original, unless you are a fan of psychosis.

    I'm grandiose. (And I love it!) I don't think you are like me.

    Not to me either, unless you have dreams I don't know about (which is quite possible). But I've always had a sense what you want from life is a career that fulfills you and doesn't feel like soul-death, and a marriage with a partner with whom you are comfortable and happy. That's not grandiose IMO, it's completely reasonable and appropriate to go for those things.

    ygolo, you always come across as well thought out and reasonable.

    I realize this is a prevalent view, but if you really look at that statement, it make no sense. You can dream you can fly, be a genius, benchpress 300 lbs, or be seven feet tall, but reality has a way of being quite persistent. The problem with "dreaming the impossible" is that you will in fact be disappointed and have a couple of options for dealing with that: 1. make-believe you did succeed, 2. be honest and set more realistic goals. People do often have more potential than they explore and demonstrate and it is good to inspire people to reach further, however, just because we might not find our outer boundaries does not mean these boundaries do not exist.

    This is exactly what I think, too, fwiw.
