This was particularly humorous to me considering the source. A man who, on numerous occasions, stated an interest in me at varying levels based on the conversation. After my last relationship fiasco, there’s a few things I’ve changed to guard my heart, emotions and well being. One is to not get in another relationship without real life involvement first. My heart doesn’t know the difference between SL and RL I’ve realized. He told me he makes it to this area occasionally. Okay, perhaps that’s a start, but until it happens, still a no-go on the relationship.
He and I were rarely even online at the same time. A 2-hour chat once a week, maybe twice. When I started working at the Monarchy, he was not in favor. He now looks at me “differently”. But today when he called me an egotistical narcissist, that was the last straw.
I have a decent vocabulary and a bit of college psych classes to know the term in general. But since I am the type to look at criticism and determine the value of it, if any, I looked it up to see if it fits.
I took it one step further and did a quiz. I will say that “my” score and Lexi’s score varies by 2 points. I scored a 9. She scored an 11. Our lives vary so that’s only fitting. Between 12 and 15 is average. Celebrities usually score around an 18. So, I’m not even hitting average, let alone Narcissist level.
Then I rated him. While I was doing this, I said to myself “Keep in mind you’re pissed off, so whatever number you come up with, we’ll cut it in half”. And on the questions where I wasn’t sure, I erred on the side of caution. 28!!! Even cutting that in half, it still puts him 5 points higher than me. LOL Fun experiment.
Yes, I like to be noticed. I like to be complimented. I want to be successful no matter what I do. I learn quickly and I’m pretty good at the stuff I know. But I can safely state that I do not qualify as a Egotistical Narcissist.
Where do you stand? Here’s the quiz I took.
