Are You The Child Of A Narcissist?
Before you begin: Some people have expressed feelings of guilt answering the questions below - as if they are being asked to paint their parent as evil. Many narcissists are nice people who would never want to hurt you. However, despite their good qualities, if your parent was limited, scared, or needy, they probably had some narcissistic traits that negatively impacted you. This is about improving your life, not about judging your parent. If you feel guilty answering "yes" to any of the questions below - if you feel you are being asked to paint your parent as "evil" - then you may find it helpful to switch the word "evil" in your mind to "limited", "scared" or "needy".
Check all those that apply to your father or mother. The word "mother" is used here to keep the wording simple.
