An interesting quiz to rate your level of narcissism.

We all have narcissistic traits, its what get us into the world each day. It becomes an issue when these traits are distorted.

Take the quiz here and then post your answer.

Check out inverse narcissists.

From Sam Vakin's Malignant Self love: Also called "covert narcissist", inverted narcissist is a co-dependent who depends exclusively on narcissists (narcissist-co-dependent).
The inverted narcissist craves to be in a relationship with a narcissist, regardless of any abuse inflicted on them. They actively seeks relationships with narcissists and only with narcissists, no matter what their (bitter and traumatic) past experience has been. They feel empty and unhappy in relationships with non-narcissists.

25
Frankly, I get usually around 90% or even more in similar tests, so I expected higher score :D :D

Seven.
Neo: What are you trying to tell me? That I can dodge bullets?
Morpheus: No, Neo. I'm trying to tell you that when you're ready, you won't have to.

Trinity: Neo... nobody has ever done this before.
Neo: That's why it's going to work.

I scored 5.

I've done some reading up about narcissism over the past couple of weeks and I've taken particular interest in the concept of the narcissist-codependent 'dance'. I'm sure I was dancing to my LO's tune for the first 3 or 4 months of my LE until it becaome too painful to continue and so I started my first attempt at LC. In spite of that I still spent the whole of last year in a state of codependence with her, although somewhat reduced.

David mentioned the idea of covert (or inverted) narcissists so I think my low score is probably showing that I'm one. At my new place of work there is one woman here who is at least 20 years younger than I am with whom I seem to be holding eye-contact quite frequently. There is definitely what seems to be a positive reaction from her eyes whenever that happens. Is that reaction love - or is it "oh good here's someone new who'll dance to my tune"?

I'm sure it's got to be much nearer the latter. She already has an SO and why would she be interested in someone so much older than her? And watching from the advantage point of my desk at one end of the open-plan office I'm beginning to suspect that another guy who works here is indeed showing codependent traits towards her.

I scored 6. However I think the questions are a little misleading. For instance I don't want to set or ignore fashion trends, but I follow them, which is not an option. I have a job that is in many ways the ultimate authority in our society, but that has little to do with whether I feel I am a born leader or that I deserve power and authority. I am probably more of a narcissist than the quiz reflects - just not in these parameters as they are set. Interesting though!
