Do I have narcissistic personality disorder traits?
Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) symptoms are more common than one may think. Some of the NPD symptoms can be motivating , but also protective to one’s self-image . Others, however, can be exploitative and manipulative ,. It is this confusing mix of adaptive and maladaptive traits that make it so difficult to identify someone with NPD. This narcissistic personality disorder test can be very useful to those who think they may have NPD and those who suspect someone of having NPD traits. Besides a total score, this narcissistic personality disorder test also provides scores on the categories: Entitlement Rage, Hiding the Self, Exploitative, Grandiose Fantasy, Self-Sacrificing Self-Enhancement, Devaluing, and Contingent Self-Esteem. The scores on these categories may help explain why you (or your friend) behave(s) the way you/they do. In general, the higher the score on the test, to more likely it is that someone meets the criteria for NPD, but this narcissistic personality disorder test cannot be used as a tool for a diagnosis. Please reach out to a professional in case you would like to be diagnosed properly.
