there are alot of definitions of insanity, what

out of control thoughts and ideas, and feedback loops
unable to tell the difference between thought and reality
deviation from the norm and population
erratic behavior
imagination over active
etc

but they could just apply to any individual or someone doing drugs

if everyone categorize you are insane, are you insane?
if everyone says you are sane, are you really sane?

If you experience reality as consistent with itself, and face challenges to this worldview honestly and openly, there's a good chance you're sane.

Impossible to tell for the individual if the individual is sane or not. We are inherently biased towards believing ourselves. Because of that, no matter how many people tell you (not to be confused with who*) you are insane, you have no reason to believe them simply at their word.

* = In rare cases some people will be able to trust someone else more than they trust themselves.
