Relationship among American presidential charismatic leadership, narcissism, and rated performance

Relationship among American presidential charismatic leadership, narcissism, and rated performance This research examines the relationship of American presidential narcissistic behaviors with charismatic leadership and rated performance. Using historiometric procedures, raters assessed narcissism in unidentified profiles describing 39 American Presidents. Archival sources were tapped for two charisma and five performance assessments. Supporting the prediction, narcissism was generally positively associated with presidential charismatic leadership and rated performance. The results were explained in terms of Kohut's psychoanalytic self theory. The beneficial and detrimental aspects of leader narcissism, as well as future research directions, are addressed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Leadership Quarterly Elsevier

Abstract

This research examines the relationship of American presidential narcissistic behaviors with charismatic leadership and rated performance. Using historiometric procedures, raters assessed narcissism in unidentified profiles describing 39 American Presidents. Archival sources were tapped for two charisma and five performance assessments. Supporting the prediction, narcissism was generally positively associated with presidential charismatic leadership and rated performance. The results were explained in terms of Kohut's psychoanalytic self theory. The beneficial and detrimental aspects of leader narcissism, as well as future research directions, are addressed.
