Why Are People So Full of Themselves?

Taught by Professor Mark Leary | 27 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Probe whether these egotistical biases are beneficial or harmful, and go inside the mind-set of personality types that display more biases than others (grandiose and vulnerable narcissists) and fewer (humble people).
