TEDx Talk - Narcissism
What would happen if we were all narcissists?
That was the question answered by our MSc student Delfina Bilello during her TEDx presentation.
Right now you’re probably worried thinking that if that was the case, we would probably be living in a world in which everybody is only preoccupied about themselves, their own appearance, their own achievements and probably thinking which selfie they are going to post next. But what if Delfina said that this could also have some advantages? She explores this suggestion in her fascinating talk.
Delfina Bilello was born in Argentina and soon moved to Italy where she grew up. Later, she spent her teenage years in Spain until she decided to move to Belfast in order to pursue further education in 2015. She successfully completed her Psychology Degree at Queen’s University receiving Top BSc Honours Psychology Student Award. After that, she remained in Belfast where she is currently attending the Psychology of Childhood Adversity master’s course.
Whilst her interests have always revolved around child psychopathology, she has recently grown an interest in research around the topics of individual differences and personality and their impact on mental health. Thus, she began exploring the Dark Triad of Personality, namely Psychopathy, Machiavellianism and Narcissism within the InteRRaCt Lab. This emerging field has helped her develop a different perspective on personality, whereby seemingly negative traits can also provide advantages.
