The term "delusions of grandeur" is often used non-technically and incorrectly, as are the names of many serious mental health conditions like “anti-social.” It is sometimes used to describe people who are disliked dictators of countries, prominent businessmen, or celebrities; these sorts of people are often seen to be selfish and egotistical. Misusing the term in this way can be dangerous, though, since it could mask or even underplay situations in which actual delusions present a very real psychopathological threat to a person's health.
