Excerpt About Ego Defense

Ego Defense of Grandiosity
One of the main ego defenses against the state of inadequacy is that of grandiosity... One comes to believe, and to behave as if, one has no such inadequacy. The defense is not only that one is not inadequate, but that one is the best, strongest, most able. One feels one can do anything. This defense is a complete denial of the state of inadequacy through a reaction formation, which is usually called the grandiose self, or a grandiose belief about one's omnipotence.
