          Quiz: Can You Spot a Narcissist?

          October 30, 2012



          Do you think you could spot a narcissist? Could it be you or someone you know? Narcissistic personality disorder is a habitual pattern of grandiosity, a constant need for admiration, and a lack of empathy, beginning in early adulthood, and indicated by the following criteria. If any of these apply, you might have a narcissist in your midst!

          1. A grandiose sense of self-importance where the individual exaggerates achievements and talents and expects to be recognized as superior without relevant accomplishments.

          2. A preoccupation with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty or ideal love.

          3. A belief that he or she is special and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people or institutions.

          4. A need for excessive admiration.

          5. A sense of entitlement and unreasonable expectations of favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations.

          6. Interpersonally exploitative and takes advantage of others to meet his or her own end.
