Which of the following traits can be seen in a person with a narcissistic personality disorder but not as likely in a person with a histrionic personality disorder?
A) Believes that he/she is special and unique, therefore worthy of admiration. B) Has an exaggerated sense of self-importance and likes to be the center of attention. C) Lacks empathy and can try to take advantage of others to promote his/her position. D) Relationships serve the exaggerated needs and have many emotional deficits.
EXP: The correct answer is "C". There are similarities in these two diagnoses, and while both are attention-seeking, the NPD may be disinterested in “seeing” the other person and is largely focused on him/herself. This is not typically found in persons who carry the HPD diagnosis.
