Dark Triad: The “Dark Side” of Human Personality

Most of work in personality psychology has focused on the Big Five traits. However, recent research suggests the Big Five may be insufficient in that it is atheoretically derived and may inadequately assess the ‘darker’ sides of people’s personality. An emerging stream of research has attempted to address this by studying what is called the Dark Triad of personality (i.e., narcissismpsychopathy, and Machiavellianism). In this article we attempt to discuss the Dark Triad traits on their own and as a group, we cover different methodological and theoretical considerations, and end by offering some suggestions for the future.
