Dave,

The word you are looking for is narcissistic. This is a psychiatric diagnosis of someone who is self centered and egotistical (this is the short version).

Megalomania is typically seen as a mania for great or grandiose performance. It falls under delusional disorders that are manifested by infantile feelings of personal omnipotence and grandeur.

Can someone tell me the difference between simply 'calling' and 'smooth-calling'?

That is Bart.

I'm a hypnotherapist, by the way.

Sorry Bart for calling you Dave in my first post—My head is still spinning over my friend—and I knew it was you. Sorry again.

If I'm not mistaken, smoothcalling is when you call when you have a monster and want the other guy to catch up. Calling is just, well, calling. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
