good guy… which one wins the girl? Researchers put it to the test.

The dictionary defines a narcissist as a person who is overly self-involved, and often vain and selfish.

If you find that attractive...you're in good company!

German researchers tested the notion that narcissists are chick "magnets" by running a series of tests...including sending 61 men out to see how many phone numbers they could collect from unsuspecting women.

The men had personality evaluations before they hit the streets. The results?

Those who ranked high for narcissism collected the most contact information. The participants who were successful also ranked high in physical attractiveness and social boldness.

Bottom line...being handsome and daring are attractive qualities to many...proving narcissists often DO get the girl.
