Thursday September 3, 2020

Narcissism has become a meme in the past few years due largely to our President, whom many behavioral specialists believe exhibits numerous symptoms of this condition.

But have you ever wondered about yourself? PopBuzz linked to a test at the website Psych Central that allows to self evaluate.

The quiz consists of 40 statements, one in Column A and the opposite in Column B. "For each statement, choose the item from Column A or B that best matches you (even if it's not a perfect fit)," reads the instructions on the Psych Central. "Complete the quiz on your own and in one sitting, which takes most people between 5 and 10 minutes to finish. In most browsers, you can click anywhere on the item to choose it (you do not have to click in the radio box itself). Answer all questions for the most accurate result."

Once completed, you will receive a score out of 40 that compares you with everyone else. According to Psych Central, "Between 12 and 15 is average. Celebrities often score closer to 18. Narcissists score over 20." The test was made to help find out if people have a narcissistic personality disorder and if they need treatment for it.

"Narcissistic personality disorder involves a persistent pattern of thoughts and behaviors characterized by grandiosity, an overwhelming need for admiration, and a lack of empathy toward others and their needs or feelings," writes Psych Central on their site. "A person with disorder believes they are the center of the universe and all attention should be paid to them, even at the expense of others. Their behavior is characterized by an attitude of being patronizing, disdainful, and even snobbish toward others, especially those they believe are inferior to them (the vast majority of people)."
