Dear Colleagues,

We would like to request any unpublished data you may have for a meta-analysis on changes over time in narcissism.

Our meta-analysis is specifically examining American college students’ scores on the 40-item forced-choice version of the Narcissistic Personality Inventory (Raskin & Hall, 1979; Raskin & Hall, 1981; Raskin & Terry, 1988). Participants should unselected groups of students, not those chosen for scoring high or low on the NPI or another measure, or singled out for being maladjusted, clients at a counseling center, in a coupled relationship, etc. If you have any eligible unpublished data from any year, please send it to me at:

Because we are under a tight deadline, please send the information from the template below by Fri Sept 14. Anything we receive on or before then can be cited in our meta-analysis. We have created a template below in order to make this easier for you. Please simply copy and paste this message, and fill in the information we request, if it is available.

In the case of multiple studies, please copy and paste the template below.

We sincerely thank you for your assistance.

Warm regards,
Sara Konrath, PhD
Associate Professor, Indiana University
