Data were collected from business students and faculty at an AACSB-accredited business school at a comprehensive state university. Results indicated that narcissism congruence was significantly related to a student's final grade in the class such that less congruence was associa...

The sample included 732 undergraduate students enrolled in Introductory Psychology cou...
