Certified Narcissist

Certified Narcissist

Life is a stage and you are the star. Unfortunately your star is burning so brightly you are in danger of burning down the theater! Confidence is great but it must be tempered with empathy and compassion. Perhaps rolling up your sleeves and getting involved in charity work or volunteering at a church is in order. Life isn't all about you.

Extreme Narcissist

Extreme Narcissist

You must be stopped. You are inordinately manipulative, self-absorbed, lack basic empathy and compassion for your fellow man and live solely for your own gratification. You are willing to lie, cheat, steal and perhaps worse to get what you want and be the center of it all, and this is not healthy. As a matter of fact you may possibly be a danger to the people around you. Can you change? That is up to you. Your problem in innately spiritual and only a spiritual solution will do. Pray and ask the Lord to take away the stony heart and give you a heart of flesh. And in the meantime avoid small children, butcher knives and heavy machinery.

Somewhat Narcissistic

Somewhat Narcissistic

Are you the most selfish, self-absorbed person in the world? No. But you're well on your way. You make time for friends and family but tend to be put off by those not willing to put you on a pedestal. Be open to those whom you normally wouldn't give the time of day; the results may surprise you. Stop squashing the empathetic and compassionate side of yourself (before you squish it into non-existence!). Let your selfless side blossom. You'll find that sometimes letting others have their time in the spotlight can often be much more gratifying and fulfilling than being the constant star of the show.

A Little On The Self Absorbed Side

A Little On The Self Absorbed Side

Okay, so you're not the most selfish slob ever to walk the face of the earth. For the most part you're a decent guy/gal, but there are areas you can work on. Don't just call friends and family to whine about your problems; show genuine interest in what they're going through. And speaking of friends, pick up the tab now and then. Try hosting instead of party crashing. Invest in enlightening your mind and educating yourself about the problems and plights of others instead of dropping a cool fifteen hundred on a new leather jacket. You can get by with a two or three hundred dollar jacket. Just breathe, put it on, and be grateful you can afford a jacket at all. It'll be okay.

Pretty Much Normal

Pretty Much Normal

Everyone needs to be a tad (just a tad) selfish and self-indulgent sometimes, but you keep it well within acceptable parameters. For the most part you're a dependable, trustworthy and honest person who often takes time to put others' needs before your own, and your friends and family appreciate this. That's not to say there isn't room for improvement (you're no Paris Hilton but you aren't exactly Mother Teresa either). There is a true and dedicated servant of mankind within you. How much you hone this servant spirit and allow it free rein is up to you.

Balanced

Balanced

You're no Narcissist; quite the opposite in fact. You're a true, loyal friend who values family and warmth. Making others happy brings you genuine joy and is a reward in and of itself, but you also make sure to take time for yourself when needed- mostly to reflect, recharge and enjoy life and nature. Because you are naturally giving and in tune with the wants and needs others as opposed to being a selfish pig (snicker) you tend to be intuitive and discerning- especially when one attempts to take advantage of your kindness. Honing the love in your heart and fortifying your spiritual life is recommended.

A Giving Soul

A Giving Soul

Far from being a Narcissist, you are in fact a "giver". Many Narcissists (some televangelists and politicians for example) are fond of projecting the illusion that they are givers. The mask these types don eventually and consistently fall away. Your giving spirit is real, which is wonderful; the world certainly needs more love and generosity. The needs and plights of others, particularly of those less fortunate, are on your heart. Because of this you find yourself praying, meditating and seeking spiritual knowledge in order to make sense of the cruel world we live in. This is a good thing. And necessary for your health, both body and soul. Your challenge however is finding a balance. Don't separate yourself too much socially from us lowly worldly types. Your gift is servitude, but part and parcel of this gift is to be able to relate, at least on some level, to those whom you are trying to serve. It's okay to hit the bar after work once in a while with the gang. You won't die. Smile and order a Perrier or (gasp) a Coke while the others nurse their Harvey Wallbangers. You'll be glad you did.

The Enlightened One

The Enlightened One

On one end of the spectrum is the Extreme Narcissist. On the other end is you, the "enlightened one". You've given yourself over to charitable and spiritual work. Not because you "wanted" to but because you answered a calling deep within. You see underneath the layers of the world; you have broken through the illusion and see what is really going on around you. Simply continue to hone what has already begun within you. Continue to surrender to the ever present voice of Love. The rest will fall into place.
