Jehovah Complex

Jehovah complex refers to a neurosis characterized by an inflated ego. The individual presents symptoms of delusion of grandeur and perceives himself as having god-like attributes.

For instance, a physician does not like to admit that he is wrong regarding a diagnosis despite an obvious proof. He also thinks that with his own abilities, he can choose to let a patient die or live. This term is associated with Jungian analysis.
