Narcissism required?

Studies have been done that look at personality traits of politicians. In at least one study (Hill & Yousey) that compared politicians, university faculty, clergy, and librarians regarding personality traits an interesting finding occurred. Though not statistically significant, thus the results could be due to chance, politicians were found to score higher than the other groups in Superiority/Arrogance and Exploitativeness/Entitlement. Therefore a question arises, does one need to have some narcissistic qualities to survive the tumultuous journey that is known as politics? What do you think?
