Self-Affirmation Through Self-Victimization
Poster Session XII - Board: XII-
Sunday, May 30, 2010, 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Thinking about oneself as a victim may be a means of self-affirming after a negative behavior. Participants wrote about a time when they transgressed against another or a control event, either in a public or private condition. Transgression increased self-victimization in both cases, particularly among low narcissism participants.
