 Indicators of a delusion
The following can indicate a delusion:
The patient expresses an idea or belief with unusual persistence or force.
That idea appears to exert an undue influence on his or her life, and the way of life is often altered to an inexplicable extent.
Despite his/her profound conviction, there is often a quality of secretiveness or suspicion when the patient is questioned about it.
The individual tends to be humorless and oversensitive, especially about the belief.
There is a quality of centrality: no matter how unlikely it is that these strange things are happening to him, the patient accepts them relatively unquestioningly.
An attempt to contradict the belief is likely to arouse an inappropriately strong emotional reaction, often with irritability and hostility.
The belief is, at the least, unlikely.
The patient is emotionally over-invested in the idea and it overwhelms other elements of his psyche.
The delusion, if acted out, often leads to behaviors which are abnormal and/or out of character, although perhaps understandable in the light of the delusional beliefs.
Individuals who know the patient will observe that his belief and behavior are uncharacteristic and alien.

Ahhh, I would like to change teh subject again...
I just had the pleasure of having dinner with Classical, Ms Classical, Dangling Wrangler, and Ms Wrangler. These are fine folks, and I truly enjoyed meeting them as well as sharing dinner! And the shop talk was fun also... I am in Houston because my Dad is in the hospital; spending time with some fine HVAC folks was a good time after spending all day at the hospital talking to doctors and nurses about my Dad's health. I would rather not post any personal details as Dad is a very private person. But if you are a praying person, please pray that GA-Tech's Dad gets better, THX!!!GA-HVAC-Tech
