Sam Vaknin Inverted Narcissist

Previously called "covert narcissist", this is a co-dependent who depends exclusively on narcissists (narcissist-co-dependent). If you live with a narcissist, have a relationship with one, are married to one, work with a narcissist, etc. it does NOT mean that you are an inverted narcissist.

To "qualify" as an inverted narcissist you must CRAVE to be in a relationship with a narcissist, regardless of any abuse inflicted on you by him/her. You must ACTIVELY seek relationships with narcissists and ONLY with narcissists no matter what your (bitter and traumatic) past experience has been. You must feel EMPTY and UNHAPPY in relationships with ANY OTHER kind of person. Only THEN AND if you satisfy the other diagnostic criteria of a Dependent Personality Disorder can you be safely labelled an "inverted narcissist".
