worlddan: Carth: "I try to avoid rejection at all costs. "

Are there actually people who enjoy and seek out rejection?

Yes, indeed there are.

Come on. this is humanity we are talking matter how weird a fetish, there is always someone out there doing it, usually more.

As far as fetishes go having a rejection one would be pretty hilarious.

-"Hey I have this weird fetish will you help me out?"
+"No way, get lost creep"

T.rex: Simply WAY too many questions for a stupid, subjective online test....  Then, they want me to add that all up?  Sorry, my web-surfing does not allow for staying on one page for longer than 5 minutes.

I think you might have a different disorder.

Lady Beryl Ersatz-Wendigo: 90.

I'm appalled by the way you people consistently ignore my brilliance.  It's made me think so much less of you.

175 here. Because I made up some more questions that obviously should be on the test, but the writer was too average to realize it.

I may be a narcissist, but that doesn't negate the fact that I am actually special and the rules other people have to follow don't apply to me.

MayoSlather: highendmighty: LoneWolf343: Writer may not know the difference between a narcissist and an avoidant.

Seriously.  That word is being thrown around alot lately.   You will know a narcissist by the scorched Earth of emotionally scarred left behind her/him.  The selfish, thoughtless, self-centered person you see in selfies and fark memes is not a narcissist, just a lonely, competitive, or incomplete/unfulfilled person. - or as mentioned an avoidant or simply pathologically shy.

Yeah, I've seen what a narcissist can do first hand. Merely selfish people you actually recognize as being dicks, but you often won't see a narcissist for what they are until they've done enough damage that you can actually see past the charm and say anything line of BS.

I've had contact with a couple of true narcissists myself. One actually said, after he was diagnosed, that "It just means he has a better perspective than anybody else."

I think the "at all costs" is rather relevant. I do not particularly enjoy rejection, but I'm not spiking drinks with drugs to avoid rejection either.

/I do that because it saves time

"I dislike being with a group unless I know that I am appreciated by at least one of those present."

Because only narcissists don't like hanging with a group of uninterested strangers?
