> One can be a narcissist without the feeling of grandiosity, according to the dsm.
So? I would define narcissism as ego inflation. As a compenatory narcissist, I don't feel any graniosity about me as a person, I don't expect you to do so either.... HOWEVER, I take real pride concerning my accomplishments & talents! ( Disregarding the fact that God gave these talents to me in the first palce, and gave me the means & time to improve myself.... )Its not who I am, but rather, what I can do!
I'll go more into compensatory narcissism in your other question.... Rich
