Inverted Narcissism

Interesting, the Inverted Narcissist sounds somewhat like me, and it would explain why I have this tendency to keep developing crushes on narcissistic people.

I think the summary of the "inverted narcissist" is someone who instead of having the overconfidence of a narcissist has persistently low self esteem while still expecting that to be valuable they need to accomplish "great things".

The way the inverted narcissist resolves this contradiction is by sacrificing themselves to a narcissist (which is why they tend to be so interested in dating narcissists.)
