A narcissist in recovery? Difference between traits and disorder?

Can a narcissist admit he's wrong, his shortcomings and his sorrow? Or would saying these things with mild improvement only be part of the narcissistic game of keeping a relationship with a narcissistic supply source? Can this be genuine or perhaps this is a heavily narcissistic trait-ed person but not necessarily with full blown NPD. How does on gauge someone maturing into having more empathy to a true sociopathic narcissist playing a game?
