Most points were in self sufficiency, followed by superiority, and authority.
Did anyone do the additional questions "for their research?" I wonder what the different paintings were used for? Maybe seeing self as alone, versus with others? Do narcissists prefer Impressionism?
I wondered that as well, some of them were obvious with one person standing and other people flocking to them or something, then others were mostly isolated vs social or a clean painting vs messy, or dark and gloomy vs colourful. Don't really know how it works, nor do I know anything about art :p
The questions are so obvious that it couldn't possibly work well to measure narcissism. Narcissists aren't necessarily that self aware. Also, a person's ideas and their actions can be completely disconnected. Most of the narcissistic people I know can always tell a pretty story. They are more likely to say they would feel uncomfortable ruling the world while they are half-way to actually accomplishing the task.

The first principle is that you must not fool yourself, and you are the easiest person to fool. FEYNMAN If this is monkey pee, you're on your own.SCULLY
But yes, I wouldn't trust a test on the internet to accurately measure narcissism. Nor would I trust myself to issue a diagnose of narcissism, since I am not a medical professional.
Sometimes I wonder if when people casually talk about narcissism; they're really just jealous of the person they accuse of being narcissistic. But it's hardly their fault that they have something you don't. And if you deny yourself things out of a sense of morality, what's up with hating someone who isn't denying those things? Doesn't that suggest that you actually want those things too? It's not so much purging yourself of desires as it is denying their existence.
