in genuine social sentiments, and are often considered  uncivil by others. In other words, they often make people feel uncomfortable.

Grandiosity can be described as having a substantial sense of self-importance; meaning that one thinks they are better than others. People high in grandiosity often tout their abilities and accomplishments while downplaying the contributions of others. They tend to put themselves on a pedestal, often having a sense of entitlement about them.

Aggressiveness is the tendency to behave rudely and with hostility toward others.

Suspicion is the tendency to harbor a strong, unreasonable distrust of others. Suspicious people often question the motives of even those who act loyally and devotedly toward them. Such people are often reluctant to open up to others, and may interpret kindhearted gestures as attempts to deceive them.

Manipulativeness is the inclination to exploit others to derive benefits for oneself. Manipulative people take other people for granted and use them to realize their own wishes and goals, thinking little of interpersonal reciprocity or the rights of others. Such people often exhaust those around them, and tend to give little in return for the services they receive from others.

Dominance is the tendency to put on airs of superiority, usually with a tendency to talk down to others. Domineering individuals have a strong desire to be seen as leaders, often reacting with combativeness when they cannot get what they want. They frustrate others by meddling in their affairs with their attempts to control the decisions of those around them.

Risk-taking is the propensity to engage in risky behavior for the sake of experiencing thrills. People high in this trait impulsively seek sensations to overcome boredom, and often get pleasure from shocking others with their adventures and stunts. Risk-takers can occasionally make those around them uneasy since their actions may have consequences for others as well as themselves.

This test made people here at Sheridan feel all sorts of emotions. Many felt as if the test questions were narcissistic and others felt like they were all the same questions just reworded. Personally when London and I took the test we weren’t shocked at our scores. My score was pretty much down the middle at 43.53% while London’s was very low at 13.83%. Whether or not you agree with you agree with your test results or not, this is an interesting experience that could teach a person about themselves.
