    I'm not saying I'm amazing, but when you date me, I'll show you what real narcissism is. But, then again, I'm also amazing by myself <3.

    I'd suggest if you are interested in understanding narcissim better check out this guy's website:
    Idealization, Grandiosity, Cathexis, and Narcissistic Progress

    The Narcissist's Stripped Ego

    He is a self proclaimed narcissist. It's funny as he actually says his source of NS is gotten by helping other people learn about narcissism so he has the huge website-thus supply of attention.

    It is a very interesting read.

    Nope. Definately not an NT thing. I almost always have fantasies about how I plan on growing up and, well, FAILING...

    The poll is public and placed in the NT Rationale because I am especially interested in the votes of other (I)NT(J)s.

    PS: Yes, I'll vote, as soon as I've finished mulling over the strength of my various symptoms.

    Edit: I voted.
    I'm an INTJ and none of those apply to me. I must be broken.

    I don't actually think INTJs are prone to narcissism; excessive pride and arrogance maybe, but not narcissism.

    Econ, I assume you are concerned that you meet the criteria for a narcissist? Is this a recent awareness or something you've looked into for a while?

    I call 2 ambition . I don't actually believe I'll get there, but it's cool to aim for. And my reasoning to get there is so I can get other things done, and move the world to a place where I get to see certain things in my lifetime. For instance I want to see other planets and stuff, and explore space, but governments want to talk about closed systems like the economy. yawn..

    All the nine traits are common. It's only NPD when you do too many, and do them excessively.

    Honestly, my IRL INTJs can come across as arrogant, obnoxious, argumentative, a little huaghty, but it is all misinterrpretation on the part of the observer. None of my INTJs, even the worst, really seem to fit the mold quite right-especially the parts about insecurity and need for social recognition, via bragging on nice things and such. They dont hold these opinions internally, they are just told they look that way.

    I currently have a pet lab bunny narcissit, who has driven me nuts, and is 9 of 9 on the NPD scale above. Normally I'd feel bad studying a person who was a little odd, but trust me, he deserves it (and a broken nose). It is utterly fascinating and I think some of the very basic assumptions about this disorder may not be right.

    They are very difficult to help or change, but I think the whole problem has been interrpreted incorrectly. If you dont understand the core issue, can you really ever hope to fix the problem by treating the symptoms?

    Same thing for borderline personality disorder.

    If this is narcissism, I think I might be a mild narcissist myself, in a few ways.

    And I think, as crazy as this sounds... I think I actually LIKE narcissists a lot more than other kinds of people. Other kinds of people just seem boring, somehow, and being around them makes me feel bored/boring as well... it's like they have no vision. Narcissists maybe arrogant and lacking empathy, but at least they're interesting.

    I'm not absolute on my typings, so don't be harsh on me if I'm way off base.
