Congratulations! You're not (or probably not) a narcissist!
Your quiz answers indicate that you have very few, if any, narcissistic traits.When a person has insight into how they're perceived and is able to process negative feedback in a healthy way, they aren't a narcissist. Luckily, it sounds like that's YOU! The traits you may be worried about (confidence or arrogance, possibly) occur in people who are sure of themselves, too, not just narcissists.If you're only hearing that you're a narcissist from one person or in one place, that means that you don't show up like a narcissist in all areas of your life. That's one way we know you aren't a narcissist. Narcissists can't change how they fundamentally are, so they get that feedback in more than one area of their lives.If you're able to be happy for someone who did better than you (or at least not be angry at them) and/or able to reflect on what you could do differently, you probably aren't a narcissist. The key here is to be able to reflect and not harbor ill feelings toward someone who beat you at something.Here's something interesting, though...If you're taking this quiz because someone told you you're a narcissist, there's a high likelihood they may have some of the traits they accuse you of having. What should you do about that?1. Learn more about narcissism and the impacts it can have on your life. There are a lot of resources out there that can give you information about narcissism. Depending on the type of relationship you have with this person, the impact may be very little, or it may be really devastating.2. Learn more about yourself. If you're someone who has been in one or more high conflict relationships, it might be helpful for you to learn more about your own personality, values, and insecurities to see if there's a way to stop having those types of relationships.3. Maybe nothing! If you were just curious about yourself and wondered if you were a narcissist (and now know you most likely aren't!), you don't have to do much of anything. Even if the person who called you a narcissist may be one themselves, having the information is sometimes enough.Hi👋, I’m Jenni McBride McNamara!I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, as well as a Coach, author, and speaker.
