摘要(中文): 在心理分析層面,自戀被視為一種精神病態,而在臨床層面,自戀屬於一種人格障礙。此種人格病態的比例粗估約佔一般人口的百分之一,自戀的人通常會以自我為中心,缺乏同理心、具優越感、權力慾強、喜愛享受特權、吹噓誇大、人際關係不佳。即便自戀人格特質者所佔人口比例不高,若以人口常態分佈為推論基礎,教育行政組織存在自戀人格特質者即為必然存在的事實。鑑於現今教育行政與領導的研究鮮少觸及行政人員自戀行為之探
摘要(英文): The narcissist is ego-centered, possessing a grandiose sense of self-worth, lacks
empathy, and believes that he or she is superior to most people as well as entitled to
privileges, which is highly likely detrimental to their interpersonal relationships and
may even attribute to organizational failure. Even though narcissistic individuals are
estimated to account for approximately one percent of the population, , based on the
normal distribution of population, it is evident that there might be certain number of
narcissists working in the fields of educational administration too. Therefore this paper
aims to preliminarily discuss the narcissistic behaviors of educational administrators
from a theoretical and path analysis perspectives. Accordingly, this paper theorizes that
(a) there exists a negative correlation between educational administrators’ narcissism and
organizational efficiency; (b) both sides are mediated by the variables of counterproductive
work behavior and impulsivity; and (c) both sides are moderated by the variables of
administrative position and organizational tolerance. This paper concludes by proposing
the implications for theory as well as practice in educational administration.
