Researchers at BU Look at Dark Side of a Personality

Published:
Are you narcissistic, manipulative, and psychopathic? Congratulations, you may be working your way up corporate ladder.

That's one of the takeaways from the research of Binghamton University Professor Seth Spain. He says narcissists are self-promoting which allows them to show superiors what they can do and get credit for it. He says manipulative, self-promoting, and sometimes anti-social personalities can be very helpful in getting ahead, at least in the short term.

"I had someone stand up and say, 'That's every boss that I've ever had!' So people tend to recognize this, at least in other people. And sometimes I've had people say, This describes my early career and I had a lot of problems,' said Seth Spain, professor at Binghamton University.

Spain says people with these traits need to avoid the excesses because they can sometimes derail a career and injure long-term relationships.
