narcissistic students?

In a study reported by CBS, researchers found that that college "students' NPI [Narcissistic Personality Inventory] scores have risen steadily since the current test was introduced in 1982. By 2006, they said, two-thirds of the students had above-average scores, 30 percent more than in 1982."

In a finding that could bode ill for law schools and the legal profession, "The study asserts that narcissists 'are more likely . . . to exhibit game-playing, dishonesty, and over-controlling and violent behaviors.'"
