" Do we honestly think we’re a deity, or even better than everyone? No. But some creative people are quite susceptible to picking up at least a few of the aspects of the God complex."- [1]

A God complex describes the state of mind of somebody who believes their pronouncements are infallible and beyond scrutiny. It is not a clinical term, but may be used as a symptom to describe a possible broader disorder. people with a God complex imagine the ordinary social rules don't apply to them and are sure they must be right. Even if what they do goes wrong and stays wrong someone else must be to blame.

A God complex can be symptomatic of Megalomania or Narcissistic personality disorder. [2]
