CROCHIK, José Leon et al. Psychic components of ideologies in the managed world. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.12, n.1, pp. 79-95. ISSN 1983-8220.

The objective of this text is to study the relationship between the ideology of technological rationality and narcissistic and / or sadomasochistic characteristics of personality, according to the Frankfurt School. We presented results of researches conducted in our country with university students, to which three Likert-type scales were applied: one to detect traits of a sadomasochistic personality; another, to evaluate narcissistic personality traits; and finally, the Technological Rationality Ideology Scale. It can be observed that the ideology of technological rationality has a greater relation with the authoritarian personality than with the narcissistic personality, although there is also a significant association here. It is also concluded that there is more than one type of ideology and psychic configurations, and that these variables are related, indicating that there is psychic motivation underlying adherence to ideologies, as already the study on authoritarian personality indicated.

Keywords : Sadomasochistic personality; Narcissistic personality; Technological Rationality Ideology; Critical Theory.
