In brief: Perhaps some
Often people who are (unhealthily) narcissistic are very charming and impress people enough with their self-confidence and capacity that they manage to rise high in the ranks.
Ultimately, such people are rather self-involved, do not tend to appreciate others, and have difficulty participating in mutually satisfying relationships. Many of our politicians are quite narcissistic!
