Delusional grandeur: You already know the term delusions of grandeur, but this does not define the disorder it's part of. This symptom can be part of mania, schizoaffective disorder, schizophrenia, some drug intoxications, and even certain character disorders. It's best to work with a mental health professional on things like this.
