1. Johansen, Matt. Driven to look good: the role of narcissism in concerns about body perception and motivations to act on those concerns.

Degree: MS, Psychology, 2012, Eastern Washington University

"Limited research suggests that there could be a connection between narcissistic traits and heightened motivation to acquire a desirable body shape. Past research suggests that narcissistic individuals revel in their own physical appearance but no research looks at the drive these narcissistic individuals have to obtain an acceptable physical form. To examine this drive, 60 participants from a university in the Pacific Northwest were given a narcissistic trait inventory, as well as some surveys on motivations to alter their body shape towards a more desired state via methods of exercise, cosmetic surgery, or eating disorder type behaviors. It was hypothesized that individuals with higher levels of grandiose narcissistic tendencies would be more likely to utilize traditional narcissistic motivations such as competition and social recognition to alter their body shape and size. Individuals with higher levels of vulnerable narcissistic traits were predicted to be more focused on their own shape or weight concerns. Grandiose narcissists were found to be more likely to be motivated to alter their bodies because of social recognition, appearance and competition. Vulnerable narcissists were also found to be more likely to exercise for social recognition reasons but the hypothesis that they would pursue body modification based on shape or weight concerns was not supported. This study adds a new perspective on how to view individuals with either form of narcissistic personality. This and future studies could help discover implications for behaviors resulting from unhealthy or healthy body issues" – Document.

2. Lechner, Kourtney. When time becomes distorted: a narcissist's view.

Degree: MS, Psychology, 2013, Eastern Washington University

"Past research has shown that many factors influence an individual's ability to estimate time. One factor that has been researched extensively is personality traits. While a few studies have investigated the effects of narcissism traits on time estimation accuracy, only one study investigated the influence covert and overt narcissism on time estimation. Overt narcissists tend to be more explicit about their demands for attention, where as covert narcissists tend to be more implicit in their demands for attention and more introverted, and have feelings of inferiority. Previous research suggests that those who are entitled believe that their time is more valuable and that boring or mundane tasks are a waste of their precious time. The current study assesses time estimation in those with covert and/or overt narcissistic characteristics while completing a mundane task and a gratifying task. Participants complete both a boring and a gratifying task and were asked to estimate how long these tasks took. Additionally, participants completed questionnaires to assess Narcissism, self-esteem, and demographics. It was found that there were no statistical differences between those with covert and/or overt narcissistic characteristics in both the boring and the gratifying tasks. This suggests that those with overt and/or covert narcissistic characteristics estimate time similarly when engaged in boring or gratifying tasks. Understanding how people with these characteristics estimate time may help provide information regarding counseling and education for future professionals" – Document.
