Via Psychology and Crime News, I came across this article in the Washington Post, which addresses the issue of the white-collar criminal. In this case, they examined government employees who defraud the government. This article only scratches the surface of the criminal thinking involved in committing these types of offenses, but it did identify narcissism as one facet. Having working at a minimum security facility, which is primarily white-collar and non-violent offenders, I can unequivocally state that the thinking errors for these types of offenders are the same as for the more violent types of criminals, they just manifest differently (for a variety of reasons). Anyone who has worked with offenders of this sort will recognize all of the typical thinking patterns. As I continue to review the various criminal thinking errors (which I started with the introduction to mollification, here), I may refer back to this article for several examples.
