Each of us has a dark side. Most people are not angels, but not hardened villains either. Nevertheless, some people are more prone to have problems with the law, demonstrate manipulative and antisocial behavior than others. These traits are called «the dark side of your personality».
So take the Dark Triad Test to measure how dark you are!
The Dark Triad Test explores your main three traits with some «malevolent connotation»: machiavellianism (manipulative tendencies), narcissism (egotistical preoccupation with self), and psychopathy (lack of emotions and low empathy).
There is also another side of high scores in Dark Triad – people with “dark personality” often reach a high social status and wealth. They also possess special charms that other people lack and it make them very attractive for potential sex partners. They are undoubtedly able to get what they want.
This quiz was inspired by research developed by Delroy Paulhus and Daniel Jones in 2011, but some questions were added or changed for a deeper assessment and best results.
