Groundbreaking study finds that narcissism runs in celebrities!

September 5, 2006

Yes, someone did a study on this.

Celebrities have more narcissistic personality traits than the general population, and people with narcissistic tendencies seem to be attracted to the entertainment industry rather than the industry creating narcissists, according to a groundbreaking study conducted by researchers Drew Pinsky of the Keck School of Medicine of USC and S. Mark Young of the USC Marshall School of Business and the USC Annenberg School for Communication.

As someone who is attracted to the entertainment industries, I would have to agree to a point. Sometimes narcissism can be mistaken for being 'soulful'. You cannot become a cog in a machine in the entertainment industry... unless you are on the technical or finance side of it.

I would say those who go into politics are more narcissistic. The most narcissist are those who go into journalism.

Reality TV personalities had the highest overall narcissism scores when compared with actors, musicians and comedians.

You don't say!

"Our research also shows that many celebrities exhibit narcissistic behavior prior to becoming famous, which could indicate a self-selection bias for the entertainment industry by certain personality types," said Young who holds the George Bozanic and Holman G. Hurt Chair in Sports and Entertainment Business at USC.

Most women have an interest in the entertainment business. This is why they talk about celebrities all day. "HEY, DID YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO KEANU REEVES? OMG!"

Your life is a stage for a woman to play the celebrity role she craves. When you take your life elseware, she has no stage. She cannot play the girlfriend, the wife, the mother, or anything worthwhile. Women love celebrities because they see themselves in them. So next time you fall asleep to a woman babbling about celebrities, remember what the Pook said: "She talks about narcissistic celebrities because, as a narcissist, she finds herself on common ground with them. Beware!"
