There’s a connection between narcissists and conspiracy theories, an Australian researcher has found.

Bond University PhD student Tylor Cosgrove has been researching the different characteristics and personality traits associated with belief in conspiracies.

Conspiracy theories can be dangerous, but they are effective because they play on people’s emotions and feed into their worldview, Cosgrove said, adding that “very consistently” there is a link between conspiracy beliefs and narcissism.

“There’s narcissism which kind of exists on a spectrum within the general population and then there’s narcissistic personality disorder, which is at the far end of the spectrum and is actually a clinical diagnosis,” Cosgrove told The New Daily.
