dc.description.abstractIncorporating theoretical and empirical work from the literature on narcissism, it is postulated that narcissism poses a particular risk in leader selection settings. By appearing confident, charismatic, intelligent, and with a high self-esteem and authority, narcissists will slip through normal selection processes by resembling an implicit image of a prototypical leader for those that select and hire them. In three independent, yet connected studies, the role played by trait narcissism is explored among applicants in three leadership selection processes for non-commissioned officers training in the Norwegian Armed Forces.nb_NO
