„Der Sozialpsychologe Jens Lange sammelt für seine Studien Geschichten über Situationen, in denen Menschen neidisch waren. […] Aus den Neidgeschichten, die [er] gesammelt hat, konnte er zwei verschiedene Neidformen destillieren. Er nennt sie den bösartigen und den gutartigen Neid.”

„Not all grandiose narcissists seem able to cash in on the benefits of their personality trait, however. ‘Sometimes they can be disliked by others,’ says Lange. To explore why this might be, he and Jan Crusius, a colleague at the University of Cologne, looked at research into possible subgroups of grandiose narcissists. Some are characterised by ‘narcissistic admiration’, others by ‘narcissistic rivalry’ – the former being driven by hope for success, the latter by fear of failure.”

„As Jens Lange and Jan Crusius, of Germany’s University of Cologne write, in contrast to English, many languages have different words for different types of envy. […] Lange and Crusius call the first form of envy ‘benign envy’ and the latter ‘malicious envy’. Using a questionnaire designed to assess the two forms of envy, they found that runners who tend toward benign envy had better results at the Cologne Marathon than those whose disposition is more suited to malicious envy.”
