> And you were aware of a correlation between vulnerable narcissism and body-image self consciousness leading to sexual distress in men prior to this study?

Considering they are practically definitionally correlated, I think everyone who knew the terms was aware.

They are not definitionally correlated and are two different concepts which is why this paper south to correlate them.

I was not expecting "Nuh-uh" as a reply.

Again, if you only read the context provided by PsyPost you would see your equivocation of the two terms shows an incorrect understanding of how the terms are defined in the field of psychology:

> Study participants completed an assessment of sexual distress that used items from the Sexual Complaint Screener for Men (SCS-M), of body image self-consciousness (Male Body Image Self-Consciousness Scale), partner-oriented sexual perfectionism (Multidimensional Sexual Perfectionism Questionnaire) and pathological narcissistic traits of vulnerable, and grandiose narcissism (Pathological Narcissism Inventory, PNI).

The two concepts measure different things.

Calling terms "definitionally correlated" is not "equivocation". There seem to be a lot of terms here that you don't understand.

I have no more time for this unproductive conversation. Cheers.

Again the Psypost press release cannot be any more clear that the two terms are measured by separate scales. You apparently understand little of psychology.

I assume most of your discussions are unproductive if you double down when shown to be wrong.
