Is the love of your life a Narcissist?

Published on May 1, 2008

Narcissists are self centered, egocentric, and shallow. They are concerned with themselves and their grand schemes. There is a personality disorder called, Narcissistic Personality Disorder, and it affects about 1 percent of the population. The following test helps to determine if your significant other meets the criteria for the disorder. However, one can certainly have narcissistic tendencies and not have a diagnosable disorder. Although, that person would definitely be a challenge in a love relationship (or any other relationship for that matter) even without meeting the full criteria.

One word of caution, diagnoses should be made by mental health professionals. Many symptoms are open to interpretation. This is only a guideline.

1. Does he/she react to criticism with feelings of rage, shame or humiliation (even if not expressed)?

2. Is he/she interpersonally exploitative (i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his/her goals)?

3. Does he/she have a grandiose sense of self-importance (i.e., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be treated as "special" without appropriate achievement)?

4. Does he/she believe that his/her problems are unique and can be understood only by other special people?

5. Is he/she preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love?

6. Does he/she have a sense of entitlement (i.e., an unreasonable expectation of favorable treatment)?

7. Does he/she require special attention and admiration to bolster his/her self-esteem?

8. Does he/she lack empathy (i.e., an inablity to recognize and experience how others feel)?

9. Is he/she preoccupied with feelings of envy?
