How the physiological indicators of self-esteem and narcissism are different.

  • Narcissism refers to feelings of superiority and entitlement. High self-esteem refers to a positive, subjective evaluation of self-worth.
  • Narcissism and high self-esteem both involve positive self-perceptions, but they also differ in important ways.
  • Research finds that children predisposed to narcissism (vs. high self-esteem) show higher physiological arousal during a social-evaluative task.
  • These results suggest narcissists, despite their sense of superiority, dread negative evaluation and rejection in social-evaluative contexts.
