Carolyn C. Morf is a Swiss-American social and personality psychologist specializing in narcissism as a personality disposition. Her research seeks to understand the self-regulatory processes (cognitive, emotional, behavioral) through which individuals with narcissistic personality features construct and maintain their desired grandiose self-views. She was one of the first psychologists to move research on narcissism beyond inferences from clinical case studies in psychotherapy into the social-personality experimental lab. This opened the way for it to become the testing ground for seeing how narcissism and other personality types are constructed psychologically.
