I'm going to go out on a limb and say it's unlikely. Just because you even have to ask. Because my understanding is that a narssisist knows they are a narsissist. They do things on purpose.
I have thought I was one too. I believe SA causes certain coping mechanisms that do seem like narcissism. For example, my only way to exist as an adult is to try and not care about others. Otherwise their remarks will hurt me when they tell me I'm quiet or whatever it might be. So when someone tells me something like that, I tell myself does it really matter what they say? I still have empathy for others though, which any narsissist would not have. Ultimately, I could never not care about others truly. It's not in my blood.
But I think it's possible we have narsissistic tendencies. I think my sister is one. I'd be curious to see if SA families typically have narsisistic members as well.

shyness is nice, and shyness can stop you from doing all the things in life you'd like to.
