    Are there any MMPI personality types that are more apt to be narcisists?

    IDK about MMPI types but I have a book The New Personality Self-Portrait that has a certain number of personality types and then their associated PDs. If I remember correctly I had three highest personality traits, vigilant (paranoid PD), adventurous (anti-social PD), and idiosyncratic (schizotypal PD). It was interesting!

    I just wanted to add that it was over ten years ago that I took this particular quiz, and have been meaning to take it again (PTSD has affected me in some ways personality-wise).

    i don't have experience with MMPI, but suspect limerence correlates with neuroticism and openness to experience scales on the Big 5 personality traits assessment: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Five_ ... ity_traits
