The Narcissism Test

Whilst reading an article about how US students are (apparently) increasing in self-confidence on the BBC, I found a link to this test.

Normally I dont put much stock in these personality tests, but it scored me at 11 - just below average. I think that's pretty accurate, I don't hate myself, but I'm a long way away from an uber-confident, musclebound egotist, ready to conquer the world.

11.

So yeah, I thought it might be worth sharing here, given that there will probably be a decent range of results - apologies if it's been posted previously.

The article: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-20756247

I scored 5.

The questions seem pretty dumb though as not all of them are opposites. There were quite a few where either both were true or both were false for me so I just had to pick at random.

I scored a 3.

A lot of the questions were pretty dumb, to be honest.

I agree, it lacked what my honest opinion would be most of the time.

I scored a 1.

Scored a 10. Rather higher than I thought.

I'm no psychologist, but I don't think the questions are all that appropriate. It's like A1: I am a narcissist, B1: I am not a narcissist, A2: Sometimes, I like to be a narcissist, B2: Sometimes, I do not like to be a narcissist, A3: Acting like a narcissist is natural to me, etc.

Woah, the Escapist record so far! Not a particularly good test though since it can't differentiate between someone who erroneously believes they are better than others and someone who actually is better, and it would be dead easy to get a low score by deliberately answering the "modest" answers. Quite seriously I don't believe I have the disorder despite scoring high enough since I get along well with most people, certainly not bad enough it's a disorder >.>

I scored 14, which is average.
So okay?

I answered honestly:

To the post above: It actually is about what you believe, that's narcissism.

I'm pretty chuff with the result (I ain't an attention seeker and I don't manipulate others) well mostly as I don't agree with the superiority. Sure I know computers compared to those who don't used one but I know there always be people out there better than me.

I got 8.

So lower than average on the narcissistic scale, although apparently I am highly explotative.

Isn't that what narcissism is? Not necessarily being better than everyone, but thinking that you're better regardless of whoever you're going against

Not the greatest test. Tons of repetition and obvious questions.

I suppose but I don't see that definition as particularly useful, whether feelings of superiority are a help or hinder depend a lot on the individual person and their situation. I'll admit I have a superiority complex or two but I'm smart enough not to lord over other people and the confidence is a great help in interviews and job applications, so I think the test fails really to find out whether any narcissism is actually a "disorder" or not.

I got a 5. Fun little test. I'd be curious to see how some people I know scored.

Gogo God Complex.

Got a 10. :3

To be fair, that's probably off a bit, because some of the questions were 'well, it's definitely not this answer, but it's also not really this answer.'

I don't generally think of myself as narcissistic, though. Cruel and manipulative, maybe, but not self-absorbed.

Wow, this test had a lot of really weird questions. Many of the questions did not have answers that I could relate to... Anyhow, I scored 6 which I guess is rather correct. Leadership and being the center of attention is nothing for me.

I feel like the vanity might be a bit inflated though. I probably encountered 3 re-wordings of the following question:

A: I hate my body image. B. I am comfortable with/like my body image.

So I take care of my figure. Apparently that makes me vain.

13, huh. Not too bad.

I would do it but I already know that I would ace it because I'm awesome and humble like that.

I scored 9, which is below average, but I don't mind really. I like to keep my head down and my nose clean, so I suppose it is a fitting score.

But so are YOU.
Yes YOU, the person reading this.
You made the deliberate choice to spend your leisure time on the internet not consuming porn or flinging insults at others like a crazy monkey flings his poo around, no, you made the decision to be a part of the escapist community and that makes you awesome.

Kinda odd numbers though & that test is probably flawed because some of those questions were not opposites.

I always enjoy these sorts of things, even if they aren't a terribly good barometer for what they're trying to demonstrate. Having said that, my results don't surprise me...

I can usually talk my way out of anything and I try to accept the consequences of my behavior.
yeah, that escalated quickly.

I got 4, but it doesn't feel accurate. Take the questions about compliments. I feel awkward whenever I am complimented or sometimes I don't even know I'm being complimented, in the same way I like being complimented. One does not mean the other isn't possible.
