Measuring narcissism with a single question? A replication and extension of the Single-Item Narcissism Scale (SINS)

Parental Alienation

Drawing on a large sample of American adults (. N=. 2153) we replicate and extend the Single-Item Narcissism Scale (SINS) recently developed by Konrath, Meier, and Bushman (2014). Consistent with their initial study, we find that the SINS correlates positively with the Narcissistic Personality Inventory (NPI) and has good discriminant validity from common measures of self-esteem. Additionally, we provide new evidence that the SINS may not primarily tap into grandiose narcissism. We also find that in comparison to other common personality measures of narcissism, the SINS correlated somewhat less consistently with our behavioral measure and has a higher threshold for detecting narcissistic traits Overall, we conclude that when inclusion of established measures is not feasible, the SINS may be a viable alternative.
