image for Study pinpoints two aspects of pathological narcissism that predicted the intention to vote for Trump in 2020

The study revealed that people who scored higher in the antagonistic and indifferent facets of narcissism were more likely to say they were voting for Trump in the 2020 presidential election.

Donald Trump’s leadership style was characterized by an exaggerated sense of self-importance and a disregard for others — two key characteristics of narcissism.

While many psychologists have pointed out Trump’s narcissistic personality traits, little research has considered whether his supporters might have similar narcissistic tendencies.

Study author Matthew M. Yalch suggests that people with inflated self-images combined with a susceptibility to feeling undervalued might be attracted to Trump’s grandiose personality.

Using a statistical technique called a principal components analysis, the researchers explored pathological narcissism as a hierarchy of related concepts.

Each dimension within the hierarchy was then tested to see whether it could predict the intention to vote for Trump in 2020.

The study, “Dimensions of pathological narcissism and intention to vote for Donald Trump”, was authored by Matthew M. Yalch. »
