This study is mainly aimed at investigating the role of narcissism in predicting personality aspects, problem solving and psychological well-being. To this end, 180 people (102 girls and 78 boys) were selected from among the students at Payame Noor University of Guilan Province in the academic year 2013-2014 using the random cluster sampling method and completed the narcissistic personality inventory (Raskin and Terry, 1988), big five personality questionnaire (Costa & McCrae, 1989), psychological well-being questionnaire (Ryff, 1989), and problem solving styles questionnaire (Cassidy & Long, 1996). The data were analyzed by means of Pearson correlation and regression. Findings suggest that narcissism is capable, as an important psychological constituent, of predicting personality aspects, problem solving styles and psychological well-being in the students. Such findings help explain why people's narcissism is an important variable. Dealing with this constituent is recommended in research areas of personality psychology and social psychology.
