Re-stating the obvious!
According to the New York Times, a USC research project has confirmed that celebrities are more likely than the average Joe to have a bad case of self love.
With the help of Dr. Drew, a USC researcher was able to get 200 celebrities to take the Narcissistic Personality Inventory, a widely respected questionnaire that measures narcissistic tendencies and ranks individuals on a scale of 1 to 40, with 40 being “extremely narcissistic.”
The celeb survey takers were guests of Dr. Drew's syndicated Love Line show.
Narcissists love sharing their 'advice' with us plebs!
The Times went on to report that on average, the research found that celebrities scored 17.84, which is 17 percent higher than the general public.
The ladies ranked significantly higher than the guys.
And, interestingly, celebs with the most skill (musicians) were the least narcissistic, but those with no skill (reality-show stars) were, “off the narcissism charts.”
OMG, we bet Danny Bonaduce would score "off the narcissism charts"!
