Trust me, I'm The Doctor.
It could easily be argued that a narcissist would rather be known for being hated then not known at all. I'm not sure that I don't also feel that way. I've always wanted to be remembered forever and if I had to be infamous to do it I may not have a problem with it. I wouldn't want to be a Hitler type character but if I was hated like George Bush and remembered it wouldn't be so bad.
