Description

Narcissistic and Psychopathic Personality Disorders influence nearly every aspect of people’s lives. They have both received extensive amounts of research with regards to their effects on leadership. Generally, both personality disorders have been found to be harmful to social environments in the workplace, with Narcissism tending to be the more destructive one. Those with these personality disorders have reported engaging in more counterproductive work behavior than those without either disorder. This research built on a past study that found those with Narcissistic and Psychopathic disorder chose significantly different choices than what those without the disorders chose. This research wanted to further delineate the aspects or Narcissism which were more closely associated with violence, aggression, and psychopathy. To do this, Narcissism was subdivided into the categories of Admiration and Rivalry, with Rivalry expected to be the trait of Narcissism most closely associated with aggression. Self-esteem was expected to play a moderating role.
