Samenvatting This paper investigates the relationship between aggressive driving behavior and narcissism, hypothesizing that individuals with inflated self-esteem that are challenged by another driver would report higher levels of aggressive driving behavior. For this study, 91 participants completed self-report measures assessing narcissism, self-esteem and aggressive driving behavior. Results showed that specific aspects of narcissism did predict aggressive driving behavior, supporting the theory of threatened egotism. These results suggest that inflated self-esteem may be an important factor in aggressive driving behavior, while low-self-esteem is not.
