    As a Fading Affect Bias researcher with a clinical psych background, your summary resonates with me, et al.

    A narcissist would tend to dwell on the good that they did and forget about the good that others did (a FAB for agentic events), and they would tend to dwell on the bad that others did (a small or no FAB for communal events), generally. Read our article for the details:

    We have not yet examined this FAB idea from the perspective of the immediate experience or memory of the narcissists’ victims.

    Please feel free to contact me if you’d like to discuss this topic further, make new research plans, engage students in this conversation, etc..
