Now that's funny.
Wonder if any of our Hawaiian posters get a "perfect" score?

Folks, there is NO perfect score.
We could probably find great scientists with low scores and great plastic surgeons with high scores, for instance. It is just an indication of personality TYPE.
Which is more important to society then: The scientist? Yes, he has the ability to invent things. Or the plastic surgeon? He will be important should you have a disfiguring auto accident. Both types are important to our well being. Society needs both low and high scorers on this narcissism test.
It is, again, just an indication of type.

Wonder what Narcissus himself might score?

Neither, the plumber is the most important. Without the plumber they both would be up to their eyeballs in stuff.

Wonder what plumbers score? Or do they find the test a useless waste of time?

Maybe plumbers are too busy being smug because they know that fixing a sewer line here can't be done by someone in India...

Narcissus would score off the charts, of course.
The plumber would score high or low depending on his personality.
There are highly narcissistic plumbers and low scoring narcissistic plumbers...but I'm beginning to think there are no "poor" plumbers from the costs lately.

5, 2 in Authority and 3 in Exploitiveness. Given that I have always tested poorly on self esteem but not on self confidence, I would say that is par for the course.

Or perhaps the plumber is too busy staring at his own reflection in the cesspool. Or am I confusing this with Narcessus? The twin brother.

I scored a 6 (3 in self-sufficiency, and 1 each in authority, superiority, and exhibitionism).
