Narcissistic Personality Disorder is defined as having five or more of the following traits:

Has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements)

Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love

Believes 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)

Requires excessive admiration

Has a very strong sense of entitlement, e.g., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations

Is exploitative of others, e.g., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends

Lacks empathy, e.g., is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others

Is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her

Regularly shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes

I myself display three of these traits (Envious, fantasies and arrogance). Everyone has some narcissistic traits. There is a direct correlation with the amount of narcissism and material success. the more narcissistic someone is, the more successful they are. It's very hard to find someone with all 9 traits. Those people usually end up murdering someone.

How many narcissistic traits do you have?

I couldn't help noticing the likeliness of being murdered by the perfect martial partner.
I think it's more like the narcissist doesn't notice the flaws or anything else of their lesser partner.

It's true that the narcissist would only think of themselves and how to use other people to their advantage. Severe narcissists that do get married don't even have an emotional attachment to their spouse. They fake it and will usually use their marriage for other gains. If the narcissist ends up murdering their partner, they believe that they have done nothing wrong.

it's quite scary.

You sure you're not quoting a prerequisite list for Officer Candidates School in the military? Because I sure seem to remember saluting a bunch of these folks. . .

I can'y speak for myself, but I lived with somebody who had narcissistic personality disorder and let me tell you, it is not fun. Of course, we didn't figure out she had the issue for a long time. That's how many personality disorders are like; it often takes a lot for the people closest to the person to realize there is something not right with them and for action to be taken (but don't become suspicious and make assumptions either).

By your definition (5 or more traits), I don't fit into Narcissism.

These are traits I believe I have/display:


Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love

Am obsessed with beauty. I find symmetry beautiful. Colours are beautiful. I always fantasise of my "perfect man" and how he should look like. I fantasise about the ideal boyfriend all the time... (he should be self-sacrificing, a bit of a smart ass, rich, funny and handsome etc lol)

Believes 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)

I do believe I'm special and unique.

Regularly shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes

Am somewhat arrogant, especially when i'm stressed out or cornered (where I have nothing to lose), i tend to be very blunt with my words and attitudes.

I know a narcissist, my sister is a prime example of a narcissist. I don't think narcissists know/realise that they are narcissists even if you handed them the cold hard facts. They will deny they have traits of narcissism.

Actually, I think I'm the functional antithesis of a narcissist and I have college to thank. It beat whatever sense of superiority I had right out of me.

Funnily you could say others put this on me. For years i was bullied, by students and teachers alike. I realised after all the suffering i was better than them cos i never loss my humanity, because i pitied how pathetic they were for following like sheep to one another. It took me awhile to get my back bone and admit what i liked without worrying about it afterwards.
Hell yeah im arrogant, cos im right so much of the time. I keep proving people wrong on things simply due to the fact i see what happens in certain situations.
The difference with me is i put my hands up when i'm clueless, or when im wrong. I dont pretend to think im perfect or right all the time.

Is it bad that I have all of these to some degree or another? No, it's human, you will have all of these in some degree. Narcissism is just human conditions in one person being higher than normal.

So you're saying that every human is capable of murder, good deduction, we already knew. Every human has all 9 of these traits just not always to the extreme.

I have all of those traits., but although I do believe I'm 'special' (it sounds silly when i mention it to others.. hm), I don't think only other 'special' people can understand.
