Study: Narcissists more creative

In my teaching, I reference the ego often. Artists have to turn it on when they create and turn it off when they are selling. When you are selling, the focus has to be on the customer and the customer's needs not the creators — whether that customer is a curator, a jury, a gallerist or a consumer. Consequently this article interested  me:
A new British study finds people with narcissistic tendencies are more likely than others to think of themselves as creative, and to engage in creative activities. If your opinion of yourself is unusually high, there's a good chance you long to share your brilliance with the rest of the world.
