With 31 years of data from more than 475,000 participants, a new study published in the journal Psychological Bulletin supports the widely held belief that men are more narcissistic than women.
“Narcissism is associated with various interpersonal dysfunctions, including an inability to maintain healthy long-term relationships, unethical behavior and aggression,” said Dr Emily Grijalva of the University at Buffalo, the first author on the study.
Dr Grijalva and her colleagues examined more than 355 journal articles, dissertations, manuscripts and technical manuals, and studied gender differences in the three aspects of narcissism: leadership/authority, grandiose/exhibitionism and entitlement.
The scientists have shown that personality differences, like narcissism, can arise from gender stereotypes and expectations that have been ingrained over time.
Often in these "Men are X" and "Women are X" articles, I feel that the basic concept of yin and yang is forgotten. We each have our own strengths and weaknesses, and where there's a weakness, the counterpart levels it out with their strength.
