A narcissist is someone who is excessively preoccupied with themselves. Synonyms for narcissism: megalomania or egocentrism. They love to talk about themselves, take selfies and be the center of attention.

Dr. Judith Orloff has a quiz to see if you are dealing with a narcissist. So, think about the person and answer these questions:

  • Does the person act as if life revolves around them?
  • Do I have to compliment this person to get their attention or approval?
  • Do they constantly steer the conversation back to themselves?
  • Do they downplay your feelings or interests?
  • If you disagree, do they become cold or withholding?
