A.

Your below average score on a narcissism measure might suggest that it is not a strong component of your personality. There is little else that can be concluded. Internet mental health screening tools are interesting, but they are not meant to provide official mental health diagnoses.

If you’re concerned about narcissism, then you might try reading books about it and or consulting a mental health professional. A mental health professional could evaluate this trait more thoroughly with evidence-based measurement tools. If you want to have a psychological evaluation, ask your primary care professional for a referral to a specialist in your community.

If you have additional questions, please don’t hesitate to write again.
