Am I Crazy? (Quiz)

You might have been the kind of person who is trying to find the answer to the question if you are crazy. There are some subtle and not-so-subtle signs of going through this mental state.

Gerald Goodman, PhD who is an emeritus professor of psychology at UCLA states that not everyone who is considered crazy just because the person is initially experiencing delusions and hallucinations. In fact, the belief that you are crazy is an indication that you are going sane despite your beliefs about having this mental state

When a person is going through delusions, this person who may have a mental illness as part of this symptom tend to not know that they are going crazy. Marty Livingston, PhD who is a New York psychologist and this author agrees to this conclusion. 

He added that these affected people would not know the difference between feeling and the truth. An example of this is the fact that people with psychosis would believe the things that were said to them in their made-up fantasy while other people are aware that they are going through a psychotic episode or something far from reality.
