To Give Or Not to Give: the Roles of Narcissistic Grandiosity and Vulnerability in Gift-Giving

The present study identifies how narcissistic grandiosity, vulnerability, and their interplay collectively affect gift-giving behaviors, which is understudied in the extant literature. The results showed that these two dimensions yield to different impacts in gift-giving; adequate levels of both narcissistic grandiosity and vulnerability are essential to promote gift-giving behaviors.
