According to psychologists, narcissistic leaders are like chocolate cake. The first few mouthfuls are quite delicious. But if you keep eating, you become nauseated.
Narcissists have a defect in the connection between two parts of the brain concerned with pleasure. This means they are unable to feel pleasure from ordinary activities. They need to constantly seek outside approbation.
By studying narcissists in brain scanners, psychologists discovered that narcissists lie about the effect of disapproval on them. They claim it has no effect, but in reality, it hurts them much more deeply than ordinary people.
