“The narcissist really wants to be admired by others. As a student, he always wanted to get good grades by any means including cheating with cheating,” said Amy Brunell, author of the study and assistant professor of psychology at Ohio State University at Newark, on Monday (12/06/2010).

“Narcissists (call for narcissistic people) feel the need to maintain a positive self-image and they will sometimes put aside ethical concerns to get what they want,” said Brunell further.
Studies conducted Brunell teams involving 199 students. In this study, researchers measured the level of narcissism by selecting the statement that best describes the nature of the participants.
For example, participants can choose between ‘I am no better or no worse than most people’ or ‘I thought I was someone special’.
Researchers also measured the level of ‘self’ and ask participants how often participants cheating with cheating at the time working on school assignments or exams during the past year.
“We found that one of the more dangerous parts of narcissism, exhibitionism (the desire to show off and be the center of attention) is associated with cheating, in this case of academic fraud,” said Brunell.
