Are You More Of An Empath Or A Narcissist? QUIZ

a empath or a narcissist

Are you in a mood for self-introspection today? Trying to figure out whether you are a Narcissist or Empath? Or do you have both traits? Here is a short, quick personality trait and narcissist/empath test to clear all your doubts and know yourself better.


An empath is someone who is very sensitive and connected to other people’s emotions, energy, motivations, and feelings.
They take into account the needs and desires of others and sometimes even take on other people’s emotions so that they literally can feel what that person (or animal) is going through.
When making a decision they do what is best for everyone around them, even if it means they may suffer or be negatively impacted.


A narcissist is someone who is more concerned with their own self rather than anyone else.
They put their own needs, wants, desires, and emotions first when deciding what to do and seek personal power and success over the greater good.

They do not take into account how their actions may hurt others in their quest for glory and social status, and they’re blind to the damage that they may, and often do end up causing.

Do you know both the above personalities are highly sensitive in nature? However, there is a difference. 
While Narcissists are sensitive only for themselves, empaths are sensitive to the whole world.
While a rare few people are complete empaths or narcissists, most others fall somewhere in between the two polar opposites.

According to Deakin Associate Professor in Psychology Ross King, narcissism is on rise. And this is evident from a longitudinal study in the US that found that college students have over the last 30 years show a rise in narcissism and a reduction in empathy. Four longitudinal and four cross-sectional studies conducted in China, New Zealand, and other places showed the same results.

    I have noticed there is a lot of confusion between the narcissistic sensitivity and the empathic sensitivity. So some narcissistic people consider themselves HSP’s and therefore empaths, when they are in fact – the opposite. I see articles (not this one) – that I read about HSP’s/Empaths and really they are defining narcissistic people.

      Yes, I can explain. Empathic people are sensitive as in they pick up on other people’s moods, vibes, needs, whether people are okay or not, you feel other people’s feelings, have depth of intuition etc. This is about sensitivity towards other people. Sometimes this is referred to as HSP – Highly Sensitive Person. Narcissistic people are overly sensitive about – being criticised, or disagreed with, or not being treated as special etc and they will react badly to that etc. That type of sensitivity is ‘self’ focussed and unhealthy. They too will sometimes describe themselves as a HSP – Highly Sensitive Person. But, in fact the narcissistic based sensitive person, is very different to the empathic based sensitive person. I see articles written about being HSP and they are describing narcissistic sensitivity. I see other articles written about HSP and this being about empathic sensitivity. And I see articles confusing the two.

    78% Empath 22% narcissist. I feel emotion too much about everyone to only be at 78%. This is not even close. Just a game. Not to take seriously. 🙁

      There is an extreme comparison! This is yin and yang at its finest…light and dark, good and evil. And it is certainly possible to lean towards one, be to the extreme of one, or even be balanced as both. You need to think of yourself healthily, you need to think of others healthily. So many clichés and quotes I could insert here, but I think you are understanding what I am trying to say.

      I got the same. So did The Minds Journal. The explanation was inaccurate too. What a load of rubbish. Fb seems to be obsessed with empaths and narcissists lately. Part of the brainwash to make ppl feel bad about themseves and sink further into the fb addiction. More distractions to stop us knowing and loving ourselves and raising our vibration
