In brief: Neurotic/psychotic

"grandiosity" refers to any sense of greatness.
It exists on a continuum from healthy grandiosity in growing children through a sense of expansiveness to narcissistic defensiveness. "delusions of grandeur, " like all delusions, are psychotic in the sense that they are defenses against terrors of fragmentation, self-destruction, and other forms of personal annihilation.
