Narcissists need to stand out from the crowd to appear to have access to unique knowledge—conspiracies also provide the narcissist with an excuse when things go wrong.


This article by Sachin Rawat, writing for Big Think, makes the following points:
  • The review article was published in Current Opinion in Psychology.
  • Narcissists usually have an inflated view of themselves and their achievements.
  •  They tend to see others as inferior to them and react aggressively to even a hint of critical feedback.
  • It is worth noting that even if a conspiracy is proven false, it is—despite evidence—very difficult to convince a narcissist that they are wrong.
