    I'm going to have to disagree with you on that.

It's more of a mismatch for a narcissist to be with a non-narcissist because the only person who is going to gain from that relationship is the narcissist.

    Marm is correct. As for why people aren't narcissists pair up with narcissists, there are a lot of complicated reasons that can happen. It often takes people too long to realize how serious the problems are with the person they've partnered with. Furthermore, some people are easily coerced by that kind of personality, mis-attribute positive implications to their negative personality traits, or tend to become dependent on strong personalities. I also think some people have a fantasy that they can become the one person who is loved by a narcissist (similar thing happens with sociopaths).

    A narcissist gains from a relationship with a non-narcissist, while the non-narcissist loses. In a relationship with two narcissists, both people are losers. The winner is the person not interacting with a narcissist.

I think my entitlement and exploitativeness are actualy extremely low (I demand the best, but I don't want people to just give it to me. I take what I want), and my exhibitionism is probably a little lower.

    This is exactly what I'd expect a narcissist to say.

    I think so because the test puts under conifident/insecure/not narcissistic and confident/self sufficient/narcissistic in the same category. most entrepreneurs and millionaires would probably score much higher than 15 on this test

    Figured I'd do it.

    Your score is
    3

    Your score for Authority is LOW
    Your score for Self-sufficiency is LOW
    Your score for Superiority is LOW
    Your score for Exhibitionism is LOW
    Your score for Exploitativeness is LOW
    Your score for Vanity is MEDIUM
    Your score for Entitlement is LOW

    I don't see a problem with that. I'm not sure if millionaires are quite high enough to fall in that standard, though.

    I'm sorry, but I think you're confusing self-esteem with an unrealistic or grandiose views of one's self. Some of the questions are quite pointedly, glaringly differentiating between self-esteem and absurd gradiosity, one most notably is "I'm a born leader." Realistically, the qualities of a good leader must be learned over time and contemplated carefully both intellectually and ethically speaking. Someone who thinks themselves "a born leader" is just bossy...that doesn't equal good or effective leader.

    I doubt most entepreneurs are pathological narcissists, but certainly some are, I would agree...because they believe the only way they can validate themselves (for their sad, inner state) is by building a world of material things around them to externally validate, which is false validation, which is a symptom of narcissism.

    Anyone who has ever been associated with a true narcissist would disagree strongly with the OP.

    I know business executives/managers have an above average representation of a handful of personality disorder traits, including narcissistic ones.
