People with a god complex tend to be arrogant and require the attention, respect, praise and admiration of others in order to feel complete and accepted by society. Unfortunately they also struggle with empathizing with others and taking responsibility for their mistakes – something which prevents them from maintaining healthy long-term relationships.
People often think they are perfect and incomparable to everyone else, which doesn’t reflect reality, but does help cover up feelings of inferiority.
