Do you think you're a special person, or that the world would be a better place if you were in charge? You may or may not be right, but a recent study says you're more likely to ascend to a leadership position, if you have a little dash of narcissism in your makeup.
Narcissistic Personality Disorder is no joke, and it's not just about vanity and self-absorption, as a cursory understanding of its mythological namesake might suggest. Instead, it's a serious pathology that manifests in about six percent of the general population. It is more common in men, and the most extreme symptoms tend to be exhibited during a person's 40s and 50s.
