Is s/he a narcissist?

We all sometimes stumble into the clutches of a crazy person. Although there are many types of such people to avoid, narcissism is one of the trickiest to spot. Often you aren't aware until you're deeply infatuated that something is off-balance in this relationship. The narcissist can be charming.

Take this quiz to figure out whether the seeming care is a seductive manipulation tactic, designed to deceive you into thinking he cares about you as much about him. The questions are based on Dr. Nina Brown's work.
