RICHMOND, Va. — Not too long after a study found men who post a lot of selfies tend to be narcissists, another study has found narcissism tends to be more common among men than women. That’s according to researchers at the University of Buffalo School of Management.

Researchers looked at 30 years of studies, articles, theses and manuals from 475 thousand people. They were trying to find differences in self-interest and self-centeredness, which are the typical definition of narcissism.

They found that men of all ages consistently showed more narcissism than their female counterparts.

The biggest difference — men seemed to feel a greater sense of entitlement to privileges than women.
