    If there’s a spectrum of narcissistic tendencies, you’re certainly not on the low end…

    But, I think a lack of empathy is a key component of a true narcissist and you certainly don’t place yourself so high above as to become completely detached from other people. You may have the biggest ego of anyone I know, but you also have a great deal of consideration for others and know when to put your ego aside.

    Roni, you’re one of the most remarkable people I know, but more than that you are an extremely caring and supportive friend. So wherever you fall on the spectrum simply becomes irrelevant.

    Yeah, If you do have a syndrom it must be much less commmom and much more interesting than that one….I would opt for something like joyous-paranoid schizophrenia with ambivalent sexual-orientation disorder as-long-as-it-stays-funny syndrom. Then again I’m no doctor, and do not plan to publish an article about it.

    Do they have a support group for joyous-paranoid schizophrenics with ambivalent sexual orientation (as-long-as-it-stays-funny) syndrome?

    Dude, you’re narcissistic (Who isn’t?) not a narcissist. Silly boy.
