If you have an active social life offline, chances are you've crossed paths with quite a few narcissists. Most narcissists are the type of people you want to count among your friends. Narcissists are usually very attractive, social climbers (think CEO's, celebrities, presidents); they are charming to a fault, well-dressed and intelligent.

But underneath that false exterior lurks a wounded, disembodied soul who is always on the hunt for their next victim.

Narcissists are sociopaths who believe the world revolves around them. You're safe from their mental and physical abuse as long as you are not intimate with them.

But how do you know the suave gentleman who frequently admires his profile in the mirror is not a narcissist?

According to Bustle.com, you just need to ask them one simple question.

      Interesting - The one question is to ask them upfront. "To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement: I am a
      narcissist. " Apparently, narcissists have no qualms about identifying as
      such."

      If my brother's picture was in the dictionary next to the word 'narcissist,' it wouldn't surprise me in the least. He personifies every quality times 10 and I cannot ABIDE his selfish arrogant and entitled @$$.

      I have a pretty good idea why the APA is trying to remove narcissism from DSM-V if they haven't already. Actors, politicians, others in the public eye have this disorder going for them. So I guess the more people have it, the more normal it is. LOL.

      I'm wondering what the preoccupation is with narcissists. Many of the stories posted are about alleged narcissists, and SR despises narcissists, so why do we need to read an article identifying the signs of narcissists?!. Aren't there positive attributes to being a narcissist? Inquiring minds wanna know.
