Boss

Is Your Boss a Megalomaniac?

Why is megalomania, the close cousin of narcissism, so often found in people holding positions of power, including, say, your boss?

Megalomaniacs seek power because they believe they have grandiose abilities, even omnipotence. They obtain power because they are skillful manipulators. And yet, they choose to exercise power in different ways. 

From resources around the web, including Monster.com, as well as our own observations, we have compiled profiles of different boss types, and designed this test for you to determine if your boss is a megalomaniac, or maybe even a good one.

Take the test below.
