    Narcissism Is Increasing. So You’re Not So Special.

    MY teenage son recently informed me that there is an Internet quiz to test oneself for narcissism. His friend had just taken it. “How did it turn out?” I asked. “He says he did great!” my son responded. “He got the maximum score!” When I was a child, no one outside the mental health profession talked about narcissism; people were more concerned with inadequate self-esteem, which at the time was believed to lurk behind nearly every difficulty.

    Narcissism and self-esteem are very different.

    Narcissism and self-esteem have very different developmental pathways and outcomes. Narcissism is associated with the need to dominate others and the need to achieve superior resources. In contrast, high self-esteem is much more associated with the desire to establish deep, intimate relationships with others.

    Why Do So Many Incompetent Men Become Leaders?

    There are three popular explanations for the clear under-representation of women in management, namely: (1) they are not capable; (2) they are not interested; (3) they are both interested and capable but unable to break the glass-ceiling: an invisible career barrier, based on prejudiced stereotypes, that prevents women from accessing the ranks of power. Conservatives and chauvinists tend to endorse the first; liberals and feminists prefer the third; and those somewhere in the middle are usually drawn to the second. But what if they all missed the big picture?

    Why the Narcissistically Entitled Are So Difficult to Please

    You’ve got a friend who you like very much, but also can make you quite anxious and unhappy. It feels to you that you can never make this person quite satisfied enough. Let’s say you offer to meet her at a certain time, and you’re a couple of minutes late. Within that short time frame, you receive a demanding text asking where you are, and when you’re going to arrive. Although you’re usually a punctual person, on this occasion, you were delayed due to circumstances completely outside of your control. Now that you’re there, you feel a nagging sense of having done something wrong.

    3 Core Facets of Narcissism, from Malignant to Adaptive

    There seems to be no end to the fascination that psychologists as well as the public to the narcissistic personality. Given that narcissism as a personality disorder is technically not highly prevalent, the attention it receives seems disproportionate compared to, for example, depression and anxiety disorders. At a February 2018 meeting of the American Psychoanalytic Association, narcissism was the topic of a considerable number of papers and presentations...

    Why Narcissists Thrive on Chaos

    If you’ve ever had a boss or supervisor who seems to exist in a swirl of unending work that needs to be done (right away!), you know how frustrating it is feel that you’re never on very firm ground. You bump into her in the hallway, say “How are you?” in what you think is a friendly and neutral manner. Instead of responding with a pleasant greeting in return, she rushes by you and says, “Frenzied!” Perhaps you have a relative who delays making any commitments to family gatherings because his life is just “too hectic.”
