does it require a sense of narcissism to have a successful business?

reason why I ask is because business is about competition and making profit, so it requires a sense of inflated self-importance just to get ahead and be recognized


if one does not have a sense of high self-importance and self-absorption, its really hard to be recognized and be successful

    It requires not being too worried about the ramifications of your business (pollution, unemployment, bankruptcies).

    Having a business doesn't necessarily mean anyone even needs to know who you are. In fact I have know business owners that prefer to appear as just one of the workers. Beating competition is about smart moves. Maybe a smart move is to be recognized or maybe it's researching and targeting your client's wants and needs.

    Get ahead situations often happen without being an owner. In get ahead situations you can simply evaluate what drives other people and fit the part to get ahead, act the part, fake it. Yes people are drawn to narcissists. People love confidence without substance to support it.
