Chicago: A moderate amount of narcissism in your style of functioning can actually make you a more effective leader across the spectrum.

According to a new research, those with moderate levels of narcissism have achieved "a nice balance between having sufficient levels of self-confidence, but do not manifest the negative, antisocial aspects of narcissism that involve putting others down to feel good about themselves".

Narcissism - excessive interest in or admiration of oneself - hardly ever comes with positive connotations.

Previous studies have focused on narcissism's relationship with leadership effectiveness, but these results were 'relatively inconsistent', said study leader Emily Grijalva, psychology professor at University of Illinois.
