There are many ways to tell if someone is moderately narcissistic. Ask yourself the following questions and rate the person in question out of ten, 10 being very much so and 1 being not at all.
- How hard does the person find it to forgive others?
- How hard does the person find it to say sorry?
- Does the person ever get angry or ignore those who question them or their opinions?
- Does the person always have to be right?
- Does the person ever agree to disagree with others?
- Does the person continually and consistently commandeer conversations?
The lower the person rates in terms of their score, the lower on the narcissistic spectrum they are. If they are definitely narcissistic but moderately so consider how their narcissism is impacting your relationship with them and honestly ask yourself if the relationship is healthy.
