The Dark Triad and you!

Post by Abdul Alhazred »

Yeah it sounds like the name of an organized crime outfit, if not in real life then in some cheesy thriller.

But really it's the latest fashionable psychobabble for the sort of personality you attribute to people you don't like, especially in politics.

Fortunately there's an online test. 8)

This is interactive version of the Short Dark Triad
Open Source Psychometrics Project

Disclaimer:
Your use of this assessment must be strictly for educational purposes. It can not be taken as psychological advice of any kind. If you are interested in anything more than learning about the dark triad of personality and how it is assessed, do not take this test. Your answers will be recorded and possibly used for research and/or otherwise distributed in an anonymous fashion.
A number of statements and radio buttons to indicate how much you agree.

There's some difficulty for me answering for such statements as: I like to use clever manipulation to get my way.

How should I respond if I really would like to do that but have discovered the hard way that I suck at it? :notsure:

People who believe God or History are on their side provide the chaos.

I have taken the test and answered as though I were good at manipulating people, but otherwise honestly. :coolspecs:
