Erich Fromm, The Art of Loving

“The main condition for the achievement of love is the overcoming of one’s narcissism. The narcissistic orientation is one in which one experiences as real only that which exists within oneself, while the phenomena in the outside world have no reality in themselves, but are experienced only from the viewpoint of their being useful or dangerous to one. The opposite pole to narcissism is objectivity; it is the faculty to see other people and things as they are, objectively, and to be able to separate this objective picture from a picture which is formed by one’s desires and fears.”

These studies, by Prof Cameron Anderson of the University of California’s Berkeley Haas School of Business, have been published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

His work has relevance because, in a work environment, higher-status individuals tended to be more admired, listened to, and had more sway over group decisions.

Although workers with big egos will often perform poorly and make more mistakes, their colleagues consistently failed to spot their errors and continue to believed they are “terrific” or “beloved”.
