HBXer–Jingning Ao’s comment:

  • Narcissism is usually a negative word in psychology, but do you know there is also a healthy narcissism?
  • Professor Elizabeth Lunbeck is a professor in Department of History of Science at Harvard. I had the absolute honor to meet her in person last week, she agreed that healthy narcissism is essential to success. Especially in academia, she said, if you don’t have strong trust in yourself, a belief in your research, you cannot make great work. Professor Lunbeck’s book brings new knowledge to the biased narcissism that “healthy narcissism fuels creativity and ambition”.
  • Here is a link for the video of Professor Lunbeck introducing her book:
