Rob -- this is why you aren't supposed to read and ponder these things. You are supposed to have a reaction and go....when I give personality tests, I try to do these things as quickly as possible. Balance is a nice thing to try to achieve, but ain't no none of us ever achieved it yet. I know I try and in my rational mind, if I logically think things out (as I generally do) I achieve balance, but in my visceral mind, the decision is generally clear. And I'm certain that yours is as well...stop trying to be rational and stop with the self-monitoring. Becomes a lot easier (though easier said than done).

As for narcissism, we are all a bit...it is self-preservation. Having no self-interest is a bad thing (though I don't think this test is designed to test for that side of things)...all in all, because NPD is one of those diagnoses where you pretty much can't have any other mental illness, I wouldn't worry about being called one in the first place. It will probably be moved in the DSM the same way the passive aggressive disorder was moved to PA-behavior instead. Isn't something to be desired in the extreme, but nothing to worry about if it isn't hurting others. Hell, some of the best care givers I've known have been narcissists...and probably because of this...

i've not seen this test before yesterday. as i read over and pondered which of the two was the healthy answer to each question i found it impossible to make a choice. my reasoning is that neither one of the choices are correct, that both held in balance are the correct choices. the key word is balance, there's a time and a place for each, that one or the other choice alone is an extreme and a cause for concern.

So what do they call the polar opposite of Narcissistic Personality Disorder? No Personality Disorder?
