If you’ve ever been told that you are a narcissist you likely didn’t react gratefully.
We primarily associate narcissistic tendencies with pejoratives because we’re only familiar with the broad stokes of the personality disorder. However, being labeled a humble narcissist is not necessarily a bad thing according to a new paper.
Researchers behind a new study published in the Journal of Applied Psychology surveyed workers employed at Fortune 100 Companies.
Ultimately they concluded that team’s led by individuals who counterbalance narcissism and humility are more productive, more engaged and perform better on daily tasks. These employees even viewed their bosses more favorably compared to firms helmed by less narcissistic executives.
