Previous studies suggested links between narcissism and self-esteem (Zeigler-Hill, 2006) and self-esteem and self-deception (Mar, DeYoung, Higgins & Peterson, 2006). This study examined whether self-deception (SDE; Paulhus, 1988) would be predicted by narcissism (NPI; Rakin & Hall, 1979), specifically in those with high self-esteem (RSES; Rosenberg, 1986). Self-administered questionnaires were given to psychology students (n=106). Data was analysed using multiple regression, and contrary to hypotheses findings were not significant in all but NPI entitlement for low self-esteem (b=0.394, p<.05). Narcissism was positively correlated with self-esteem r = -.392 (p=<0.01). Age was negatively correlated with NPI Vanity r = -.198(p<0.05), with males more narcissistic than females on NPI Authority (t(104)=2.17, p<0.05) and Superiority (t(84)=2.12, p<0.05).
