"Individuals high on this trait are sincere, modest, fair-minded, and non-greedy. They do not exploit others, even when there would be no retaliation for doing so. Individuals at the low end of this trait, on the other hand, are dishonest, haughty, and arrogant. They lack empathy and exploit others."
i am not greedy. Il share everythig i have and let someone i love live with me and try make it work every way i can until I feel taken advantage of. At that point all I demand is my space for a while and give it more time to change. I will lose trust that it will change after a while if it doesn't and then I'll take the steps I need to eliminate the problem.


how I see myself on the low end:
I don't. In my past relationships yes. I see can see it. but I have found someone I think could be a great person to be with if we can work all this out and that gave me motivation to actually change and be the person I know I want to be.

It's a lethal combination. Add the fact that dishonest people are often narcissists who've spent their whole lives learning how to be charming and seem trustworthy and if you're an honest person, the chances of your being taken in by a narcissist are alarmingly high.
i want to look in to it more but im pretty sure the one I am loving now is a narcissist. our good moments are so good that i hope it isn't true. After reading this though.... my hopes are very very low......
