People who are naturally dominant often succeed in reaching to the top of the corporate ladder but their self-obsession and boastful arrogance makes them worst bosses, a new study has revealed.
University of Amsterdam researchers divided 150 participants into groups of three. One in each was made leader and the other two were told they could advise, but that the leader would make the decision, the Daily Mail reported.
Group members rated the most narcissistic leaders as most effective, but actually the groups led by the biggest egotists never chose the best candidate.
“There’s no doubt narcissism can sometimes be useful in a leader,” Psychologist Barbora Nevicka, who led the study, said.
