Is IDS a compensatory narcissist?

For those who can't view the text in the picture on their phone, it says:

Is the Tory Work & Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith a compensatory narcissist?

Here are some of the common behaviourly traits:
  • Strives for recognition and prestige to compensate for the lack of a feeling of self-worth
  • May "acquire a deprecatory attitude in which the achievements of others are ridiculed and degraded"
  • Has persisten aspirations for glory and status
  • Has a tendency to exaggerate and boast
  • Entertains fantasies of greatness
  • Covers up a sense of inadequacy and deficiency with pseudo-arrogance and pseudo-gradiosity
  • Produces work not up to the level of his abilities because of an overwhelmingly strong need for immediate gratification of success
  • Is touchy, quick to take ofeence at the slightest provocation, continually anticipating attacks, reacting with anger and fantasies or revenge when he feels himself frustrated in his need for constant admiration
