Undergraduate business students scored significantly higher than psychology students on a widely used measure of narcissism (17.67 versus 15.19 on the Narcissistic Personality Inventory) in a study led by James W. Westerman of Appalachian State University. Although many jobs today require managers to be interpersonally skilled, “our future business leaders appear to be even more self-absorbed and entitled” than students in other disciplines, the researchers say.
