Is Narcissism Adaptive or Maladaptive?
In a capitalistic society, where reward is granted to the greedy, is Narcissism Adaptive? I think I could make a very good argument that dropping the conscience would be rather helpful, in regards to climbing the corporate ladder. On the other hand I could argue that pathologically selfish behavior is absolutely maladaptive and would probably lead to suffering on the home front and workplace.
