Narcissists are more likely to be politically active, according to new research.

Researchers found individuals who displayed classic narcissistic traits – like selfishness, entitlement and a need for admiration – were more likely to sign petitions, reach out to elected officials and vote in midterm elections.

People who were self-sufficient, however, were less likely to be politically engaged.

Peter Hatemi, a political science professor at Penn State University, said his findings may explain ‘the current state of our democracy.’

‘If people who are more interested in their own personal gain and status take a greater part in elections, then we can expect candidates to emerge who reflect their desires – narcissism begets narcissism,’ said Hatemi, whose research was published in the journal Society for Personality and Social Psychology.

Sander Thomaes, a developmental psychologist at Utrecht University, has called President Donald Trump a ‘prototypical narcissist,’ exhibiting a grandiose self image, an overinflated ego, an insatiable need for attention and admiration and a tendency to lash out when criticized.

‘Narcissists blame others for their failures,’ Thomaes said in the run-up to the 2016 US presidential election. ‘In their eyes, they have often been snubbed. Or the other has cheated.’
