The Narcissist in Chief
WITH the presidential campaign in full swing, a perennial question has resurfaced: How much weight should voters give…
We found that narcissism, specifically “grandiose narcissism” — an amalgam of flamboyance, immodesty and dominance — was associated with greater overall presidential success. (This relation was small to moderate in magnitude.) The two highest scorers on grandiose narcissism were Lyndon B. Johnson and Theodore Roosevelt, the two lowest James Monroe and Millard Fillmore.
I find it interesting to speculate on the notion that if (a) Mr. Trump is a narcissist, that (b) he might be just what we need at the moment, to clear up a rather large set of economic and possibly military problems.
Flame away. :-)
