Most c's: high level
You're often suspicious and feel persecuted. Because of this paranoia, you have narcissistic tendencies. You overestimate yourself, you're sometimes irrationally jealous, you think the whole world is conspiring against you. It's imperative that you take a step back and cool down your inner anxiety to stop believing that people are out to get you!
