Instructions: Below is a list of statements that typically ring true for people with a narcissistic personality. The test is not a diagnostic tool for narcissistic personality disorder, but instead measures sub-clinical or normal expressions of narcissism. As such, even someone who gets the highest possible score does not necessarily have narcissistic personality disorder. Please read each statement carefully, and indicate the extent to which it applies to you.

The IDRlabs 3 Minute Narcissism Test (IDR-3MNART) was developed by IDRlabs. The IDR-3MNART is based on the work of Drs. Robert Raskin and Calvin Hall, Ph.D., and the Narcissistic Personality Inventory tool. The IDR-3MNART is not associated with any specific researchers in the field of psychopathology, or any affiliated research institutions.

The IDRlabs 3 Minute Narcissism Test was informed by the Narcissistic Personality Inventory as published in Raskin RN, Hall CS. A Narcissistic Personality Inventory. Psychol Rep. 1979, Oct;55(2):590. PubMed PMID: 538183. Raskin RN, Hall CS. A principal-components analysis of the Narcissistic Personality Inventory and further evidence of its construct validity. J Pers Soc Psychol. 1988 May;54(5):890-902. PubMed PMID: 3379585. And: Gentile B, Miller JD, Hoffman BJ, Reidy DE, Zeichner A, Campbell WK.

The work of Drs. Raskin and Hall has been influential in the field of personality psychology and is still commonly used decades after its original formulation. The present test is intended for educational purposes only. IDRlabs and the present IDRlabs 3 Minute Narcissism Test are independent from the above researchers, organizations, or their affiliated institutions.

The 3 Minute Narcissism Test is based on a famous and well-regarded inventory for the assessment of non-clinical levels of trait narcissism, which is a personality trait characterized by a grandiose sense of self-importance, a lack of empathy for others, and a need for excessive admiration. However, free online tests and quizzes such as this one are solely first takes and cannot provide clinically accurate assessments of your personality. Hence, the test is intended to be used for educational purposes only. A definitive personality assessment can be made only by a qualified personality psychology researcher or mental health professional.

As the publishers of this free online 3 Minute Narcissism test, which allows you to assess your levels of trait narcissism, we have strived to make the test as reliable and valid as possible by subjecting this test to statistical controls and validation. However, free online quizzes such as the present 3 Minute Narcissism Test do not provide professional assessments or recommendations of any kind; the test is provided entirely “as-is.” For more information about any of our online tests and quizzes, please consult our Terms of Service.
