[Watch] It’s Official, Men Are More Narcissistic


Sorry guys, we girls may be the ones who primp endlessly and take a lot more time in the bathroom, but y’all are the ones who are more narcissistic.

… A “meta-analytic review” of 31 years of research has led University at Buffalo researchers to the conclusion that men are more narcissistic than women.

The researchers pored over 355 papers that encompassed findings on 475,000 subjects and found their conclusion held regardless of age or generation. The researchers broke narcissism into three buckets, examining entitlement, leadership/authority, and grandiose/exhibitionism.

Men most greatly outpaced women when it came to entitlement, suggesting, per a press release, that “men are more likely to exploit others and feel entitled to certain privileges.” They also “exhibit more assertiveness and desire for power,” lead author Emily Grijalva explains, and were more likely to agree with statements like, “I insist upon getting the respect that is due to me,” theWashington Post reports.

On Fox & Friends, Tucker Carlson, Brian Kilmeade and Elizabeth Hasselbeck talk to Dr. Keith Ablow about the mega study.

It seems that men and women are even in the grandiose/exhibitionism area, but the men are just the more narcissistic sex.  Go figure.
