Does popularity have anything to do with it?
Do you think poorly of yourself?
Are you ever enough for others?
Do you get lucid thoughts?

In my experience bipolar folks usually dwell in a state of depression but can be lifted up by mania. Mania is a natural high that makes you feel unusually creative and energetic. Oftentimes the mania can also make you more social than you normally would be and thus more popular. Mania can turn into delusion: of grandeur or other forms of delusion. Mania can turn into psychosis too.
Mania and depression affect people differently so different people will respond differently to your questions. Generally bipolar folks are lucid except when in mania. Manias can be lucid or no.
