AbstractRecent empirical studies have looked that the relationship between narcissism and different aspects of organizations. However, little research exists on narcissism in group work and its relationship with productivity and group effectiveness. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between narcissism, self-perceptions and other perceptions of competence and contribution in a team performance setting. Data were collected from college-aged students (N = 52) at a state university. Results indicate that a narcissistic view of authority is correlated the group's perception of leadership and with time spent talking during the group task. Furthermore, narcissistic vanity was positively correlated with higher group respect and personal error on the in-lab task.
