Why Narcissists Nail Job Interviews

From Daily Worth:

Recent research from the University of British Columbia found that narcissists are more successful in job interviews than their more modest counterparts. In the study, 72 participants responded to a questionnaire measuring their levels of narcissism and then were videotaped as they simulated being interviewed for a job. The videos were later evaluated by 222 raters, who appraised the self-promoters as the most attractive applicants.


This posting (here) offers tips on making eye contact, using good body language, being upbeat, interviewing the interviewer, highlighting accomplishments, and deflecting weakspots.
