For national narcissists people are a sacrifice the narcissists are willing to make

How far are governments willing to go to uphold national pride? Research carried out by an international group of scientists, including Professor Aleksandra Cisłak, Head of SWPS University’s Center for Research on Social Relations, shows that in critical situations, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, leaders may prioritize a strong image of the group over members' well-being.

What we researched:

  • Collective narcissism – a belief in in-group greatness that is not appreciated by others.

How we did it:

  • Four studies carried out in Poland, UK, and the US, on a national level and in a workplace demonstrated that collective narcissism predicts readiness to conspire against in-group members. The studies examined the concomitants of personal willingness to engage in conspiracies against fellow group members.

Why is it important:

  • Because the study has shown that collective narcissism, measured in the context of national identity, predicted readiness to engage in secret surveillance against one's own country's citizens.

"Collective narcissists’ obsession with the in-group’s image and craving for recognition of its greatness may mean they forgo opportunities to effectively tackle crises. We found robust evidence that those high in national narcissism preferred image management over protecting fellow citizens in the context of a global pandemic."
