The present study aims to validate an Italian version of the Narcissistic Admiration and Rivalry Questionnaire (NARQ), which operationalizes the two-dimensional model of grandiose narcissism recently proposed by Back et al.

Three hundred individuals participated in the study (mean age = 31.20, SD = 11.6, 30% males). A confirmatory factor analysis supported the expected two-factor structure. Adequate levels of internal consistency were found for the overall NARQ scores, as well as for the Admiration and Rivalry scale scores. Although Admiration and Rivalry were positively correlated, they showed a distinctive pattern of correlations with the Narcissistic Personality Inventory, the Rosenberg self-esteem scale, and the Big Five Inventory. These results replicate Back et al.’s (2013) original findings and thus provide support for the validity and reliability of the Italian version of the NARQ.

Abstract

The present study aims to validate an Italian version of the Narcissistic Admiration and Rivalry Questionnaire (NARQ), which operationalizes the two-dimensional model of grandiose narcissism recently proposed by Back et al. (2013). The model differentiates between Admiration and Rivalry, two dimensions that entail the agentic and antagonistic aspects of narcissism, respectively. Three hundred individuals participated in the study (mean age = 31.20, SD = 11.6, 30% males). A confirmatory factor analysis supported the expected two-factor structure. Adequate levels of internal consistency were found for the overall NARQ scores, as well as for the Admiration and Rivalry scale scores. Although Admiration and Rivalry were positively correlated, they showed a distinctive pattern of correlations with the Narcissistic Personality Inventory, the Rosenberg self-esteem scale, and the Big Five Inventory. These results replicate Back et al.’s (2013) original findings and thus provide support for the validity and reliability of the Italian version of the NARQ.
