This paper examines why and when high-rivalry narcissists demonstrate greater severity in punishment decisions towards others compared to narcissists high in admiration. Three studies were conducted to test our hypotheses. We found that individuals high in narcissistic rivalry versus narcissistic admiration were more likely to devalue others, which therefore resulted in them making more severe punishment decisions. In addition, when individuals higher in narcissistic rivalry also had a higher sense of power, their tendency to devalue others was stronger than individuals who had a lower sense of power. Moreover, the positive effect of narcissistic rivalry on level of severity in punishment decisions via devaluing others was only found in the high sense of power condition. Collectively, our findings provide several important theoretical and practical implications that are relevant to advancing our understanding of the complexity associated with narcissistic tendencies, power, and the moral judgments made by such individuals.
