Just how narcissistic are you? The Narcissistic Personality Inventory (NPI) measures narcissistic traits, but does not diagnose narcissistic personality disorder. Narcissism has become such a pervasive issue today, says Dr. Drew Pinsky, author of the "Mirror Effect: How Celebrity Narcissism is Seducing America," that it's natural for most readers to identify with at least some of the issues and to wonder where they fall on the narcissism spectrum.
As always, if you have concerns about narcissism or any mental health issue, print a copy of your test results and share them with your doctor or a mental health professional.
Instructions: In taking this narcissism test, it may be difficult to choose between the two choices offered to you. You may feel that neither, or both, apply. However, you must choose one. The NPI should be taken in one sitting and no one should help you with the responses.
