Narcissists might have “grandiose” delusions about their own importance and an absence of “shame” – but psychologists say they are also likely to be happier than most people.
Dr Papageorgiou’s research with 700 adults suggests even though it might be bad for society, it seems to be beneficial for individual narcissists.
They have lower levels of stress and are less likely to see life as stressful – with their self-confidence and heightened sense of self-importance appearing to be “protective” qualities.
But is this just a sign that out culture rewards individualism over the collective good? What do you think?
