Narcissism. One of the hottest buzzwords over the past couple of decades. And since so many people are talking about it, I thought why not get one of the world’s leading experts on the topic to help you understand it better: Dr. W. Keith Campbell.
I’ve heard from countless individuals who have been hurt by a narcissist - whether a family member, a partner, a friend, a boss .... I’ve been hurt by one too. You’ll often hear people toss the word around so readily. But today, we explore the real science behind narcissism, with a psychologist who literally wrote the book on it.
Plus, hear him weigh in on a viral video - watched by millions - in which I ask Dr. Gabor Maté, “How can you have two people raised by the same parents, in the same way … one becomes a narcissist, one doesn’t?”
Dr. Campbell is a social psychologist and the author of several books on the topic - including The New Science of Narcissism - and The Narcissism Epidemic. He’s also a professor of psychology at the University of Georgia.
Oh! And if you like personality assessment tests, he gives you an excellent one. (Of course, it’s science-backed.)
