> 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)
> - intellectual

> 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?

Hello Jan:
Well, Millon says that compensatory narcissism has elements of the Contrary-Leisurely & Sensitive styles. Millon compares the Negativistic & Narcissistic on pgs bottom of 487 & 488. The difference seem to be their attitude toward life. The Contrary-Leisurely feels that they have ended up like Job, through no fault of their own, and they want an end to their suffering. The Inventive ( Compensatory Narcissism ), instead believes that they have truimphed over all that, and are winners! I see the 2 as more of ying-yang. ( Critics would say that the C-N has undergone alot more ego inflation.... ) Rich
