Criminal Minds: Narcissism Predicts Offending Behavior in a Non-Forensic Sample

Blinkhorn, Victoria, Lyons, Minna and Almond, Louise (2018) Criminal Minds: Narcissism Predicts Offending Behavior in a Non-Forensic Sample. Deviant Behavior, 40 (3). pp. 353-360. ISSN 0163-9625

Item Type: Article


Narcissism has been associated with various offending behaviors; however, the majority of research has concentrated on men using forensic samples. This study (n = 632) investigated narcissism and how it relates to offending behaviors, including both sexes. Significant differences were found when comparing the relationship between narcissism and offending behavior, demonstrating that narcissism influences offending behavior differently in the two sexes. These new findings contribute to the very little we know about narcissism in women, suggesting that both sexes should be included in future research on narcissism and offending.
