This experimental study explored the role of agentic and communal narcissism in response to positive, negative, or neutral feedback on a difficult task. Results revealed that those scoring high in communal narcissism responded differently than those scoring high in agentic narcissism, further illustrating the applied distinction between the two constructs. Implications are discussed.
