1690028021 A review on the outcomes of comes narcissism regarding political psychology

Collective narcissism is a form of social identity that reflects the convictions about an in-group’s greatness and exceptionality. Since these grandiose beliefs are dependent on getting validation from other groups, those identiying with their in-groups in the narsissistic way have preoccupations about these in-groups being underappraciated. This review aims to provide a comprehensive summary on the outcomes of collective narcissism regarding political psychology in the Turkish literature. Accordingly, the first part of the review includues the theoretical background of collective narcissism and the empirical studies investigating its origins. The second part includes the review of the empirical studies that examined the effects of collective narcissism on politics under four sections (perceptions about country and history, conspiracy theory beliefs, voting preferences and views on democracy, supported policies and applications). The research reviewed demonstrate that collective narcissism studied in the national contexts predicts electorates’ political preferences and beliefs that could have harmful consequences both for internal and external politics. The last part of the review points out research gaps based on the critical analysis of the reviewed studies, and presents future research suggestions for the researchers and students who would like to study on this topic.
