Of course. It is not the denying of one's being narcissistic that makes one narcissistic.

Narcissism is the pattern of traits and behaviors which involve infatuation and obsession with one's self to the exclusion of others and the egotistic and ruthless pursuit of one's gratification, dominance and ambition. In everyday use outside the field of Psychology, the word generally refers to people who just are inordinately fond of themselves, without the pathological connotations.
