Author Jeffrey Kluger describes how even Gandhi and MLK exhibited narcissistic behaviors in his recent Big Think Interview.

"Even our greatest and most humble people, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, had to have had narcissistic components to their personality. They gravitated toward attention, they gravitated toward crowds. If we believe that they didn't get a charge out of standing before a crowd of half a million people, or in thecase of Gandhi millions, and moving an entire nation with their words, well we don't really understand human nature then if that's what we think. 

Of course they got a charge out of it. 

But they were equally humble men."

As is mentioned in the image above, Kluger is the author of the new book The Narcissist Next Door
