Beyond the stupidity of trying to pretend you can measure narcissism is the obvious question of whether or not the cart is before the horse.

Maybe people with certain genetically inherited health risks are naturally prone to narcissism.

But having said that, I realize it's just as stupid as the original proposition.

Your description is the best. Pseudo-scientific crap.

It's more worship of the Almighty Study Grant.

The psychiatric definition of narcissism seems to be confused with egomania, which is quite a different thing. Freud has an essay on narcissism which is very interesting, and consistent with the idea of the Greek myth. The narcissist is self-involved, and does not seek the approval of others. Freud notes that the narcissist can be attractive to others, like a tiger or a beautiful woman, precisely because of this air of self-satisfaction.

Well, you can go round and round with it.
