Existing empirical research and theory suggests that narcissistic individuals engage in self-regulatory processes aimed at minimizing vulnerability during social interactions. We investigate this tendency of narcissists to minimize vulnerability in social interactions by examining their physiological reactivity during a social evaluative task, predicting that narcissists would be highly responsive to social feedback and particularly defensive to rejecting feedback.
