Is There Such a Thing as a Covert, Introverted Narcissist?

The Hypersensitive Narcissism Scale (HSNS) was developed by Holly M. Hendin and Jonathan M. Cheek over 15 years ago.  A blog over at Scientific American highlights this scale in a post by Barry Kaufman called 23 Signs You’re Secretly a Narcissist Masquerading as a Sensitive Introvert.

The most shy, the most sensitive, the most misunderstood. Most people first think of narcissists as loud and blustering, but this is not always the case. Kaufman’s article offers the quiz. Might be interesting to take a look, no? If not about you then about someone you know.
