Another Narcissism Test

.

Narcissism (Insolent Pride) can take many forms.  He (or she) can be the obvious extroverted center of attention, but he can also be introverted and reserved.

The essence of narcissism is not the outward style, but “selfishness and empty conceit” instead of “humility of mind” – as Paul admonished against here……

.

Philippians 2:3 – “Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves…”

.

A good secular discussion of this can be found in the following article

This article includes an interesting test for “introverted narcissism”.  Its worth a look.

Note:  Narcissism is the modern colloquial term for what the Bible describes as “insolent pride” – see here
