Tuesday Talk: The Psychology of Narcissism with Dr Papageorgiou

What would you think if someone were to call you a narcissist? In the past several decades, modern societies have immortalised individualism. Indeed, recent research suggests that individualistic practices and cultures are continuously growing! Yet people frown upon traits that promote self-interest, such as those included in the Dark Triad: Machiavellianism, narcissism and psychopathy. How, then, can these socially toxic traits be on the rise?

Join us in an insightful and empathetic exploration of narcissism, a complex and often misunderstood psychological disorder. In this talk, Dr Kostas Papageorgiou of Queen’s University Belfast will present his findings to suggest that dark personalities are neither bad nor good – they are adaptive or maladaptive, depending on the context. The discussion will also focus on cultural influences on human personality and gender differences in dark personality traits.

Dr Kostas Papageorgiou is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Psychology at Queen’s University Belfast and Director of the MSc in Applied Developmental Psychology. His current research interests include the study of the Dark Tetrad (Psychopathy, Narcissism, Machiavellianism and Sadism), exploring its structure and the developmental factors that contribute to variation, and its outcomes such as resilience and performance.

Doors open at 7pm, talk starts at 7.30pm – come down early to grab a good seat!
