Why Do Some People think they're all that?

When they're not... for instance some people think they're so good looking, young and wanted, yet they are seriously overweight, old and haven't had a date in 20 yrs. It's like they live on another planet. It doesn't appear to be low self-esteem, but they don't see themselves as others really see them. They are convinced that anyone that is the least bit smiling is "attracted to them." How do you deal with people like that who won't stop bragging about themselves?

I think the more interesting question is why you would ever assume that you know what these people genuinely think of themselves. If you did actually know how these people felt, then, of course, you would not be asking this question, as you would already know the answer. Since you do not, consider that you may be mistaking perception for reality, a common occurrence/event/issue/problem that probably answers at least half of the questions on here...

Well, either it's a very inflated ego, denial, or they're very insecure. People are strange sometimes...and most likely if they act like that they just have a mental block that tells the that they're better or they're trying to hide their own insecurities.
