mood-congruent

mood-con·gru·ent (md kongґgroo-ənt) consistent with one's mood. The term is used particularly in the classification of mood disorders: in those disorders with psychotic features, mood-congruent psychotic features are grandiose delusions or related hallucinations occurring in a manic episode or depressive delusions or related hallucinations in a major depressive episode, while mood-incongruent psychotic features are delusions or hallucinations that either contradict or are inconsistent with the prevailing emotions, such as delusions of persecution or of thought insertion in either a manic or a depressive episode.
