I don't know Rich. This is not so easy. There is certainly a lot of overlay between compensatory narcissism and negativistic/contrary-Leisurely:
- jealousy of succes of others
- need for admiration (feel they don't get enough of it)
- also snobbishness is ' going against the grain' of the mainstream (contrary behavior)
I'll have to think about this. Perhaps when the negativist can be seen as the ' sour/critical/sceptical ' type-brother of the compensatory narcissist?
