Abstract

The present study examined the relations between narcissism and aggression in 247 university students using the Turkish versions of the Narcissistic Personality Inventory (NPI; Raskin & Hall, 1979) and Buss & Perry Aggression Questionnaire (BPAQ; Buss & Perry, 1992). NPI had two factors; power and exhibitionism and the sub-dimensions of the BPAQ were anger, physical aggression, verbal aggression and hostility. As hypothesized, regression analyses revealed that exhibitionism (maladaptive factor) was the positive predictor of physical aggression, anger and hostility. Unexpectedly, regression analyses revealed that power (adaptive factor) was also the positive predictor of physical aggression, verbal aggression and anger. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
