Narcissistic Personality Inventory (NPI)

According to the DSM-IV, narcissistic personality disorder is defined as a "pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behaviour), need for admiration and lack of empathy, beginning in early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts." (p. 282). Also see the Hypersensitive Narcissism Scale (HSNS), which tests specifically for the covert form of narcissism as identified in the research.

For this scale, please choose the response (A or B) that best describes you. Do not spend too long on each question. The scale is composed of 40 questions and takes less than 10 minutes to complete.

Anyone who scores higher than 0/40 is a danger to themselves and everyone around them.

I scored a modest 25. Now get your filthy hands off the legs of my throne. Distance please!

No healthy and emotionally balanced person will score a 0/40; once aware, people can, and do change; self deprecation is often an invisible wall not to let others in; confidence in thought is healthy; confidence in all deeds is not; there will always be leaders and followers; sometimes one needs to lead, other times, one should follow, and sometimes, just get out of the way so something can get done!

hardly any data questions on penises and vaginas, how can you be a narcissit if your big penis doesnt conquer a few tight vagina?

I filled out the test as if I were someone I know very well, and she scored 48 ! Scares the hell out of me actually.

Keep getting from 28-36..... So many of these things I was just like- yup that's how I feel, the idea of being a narcissist doesn't bother me very much, I am intelligent, skillful and a leader, recognizing these things and the overall feeling of grandeur make me vain and pretty narcissistic but they also are what make me believe I will be sucesful

Dumb online test - either or answers aren't definitive enough to be valid. Though the guy that looks for little boxes to type things about his penis is a narcissist, and he didn't say what he scored. I'm thinking with his attitude - he doesn't! lol@me

What a relief to find out that the person I thought was narcissist really isn't.
