by Skiera, Ryan A., Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2016, 114 pages; 10245704


Narcissism has become a popular research topic and has been shown to affect different areas of the organization and management. Recently research has been investigating the impacts of the sub-dimensions of narcissism on different aspects of the organization and as such this dissertation filled the gap in knowledge regarding the effect that narcissism’s sub-dimensions has on job satisfaction and organizational commitment. This study used a quantitative methodological approach using multiple independent variables being compared to each dependent variable separately, because of this a multiple regression statistical analysis was used to find the relationship between these variables. This was done by using college-educated, white-collar professional working in the United States. After conducting a regression analysis, it was found that the sub-dimension of entitlement/exploitativeness has a negative relationship with job satisfaction.
