18-D: Me First, Then the Environment: Pro-Environmental Behavior in Communal Vs. Agentic Narcissists

Iman Naderi, Fairfield University, USA
Across two experiments and following a new formulation of narcissism (i.e., the agency-communion model), this research investigates whether agentic and communal narcissists differ in their likelihood to engage in various forms of pro-environmental behavior. Supporting this proposition, this study also shows that perceived self-sacrifice and perceived social-benefits could influence these two groups of consumers' decision to purchase eco-friendly products.
