I was recently reading an article that stated if you have narcissistic tendencies you tend to be more likely to get dates on a dating app. They mentioned though to be careful, as narcissism is one of the Dark Triad Traits.

Of COURSE, I had to look up what those were!

Check them out below and take the quiz yourself!

Dark Triad is a subject of psychology that looks into three specific traits often found in people.

Use of the term "dark" implies that people possessing these traits have malevolent qualities.

These qualities often overlap and are closely connected to each other. People scoring high on these traits are more likely to commit crimes, cause social distress and create severe problems for an organization, especially if they are in a leadership position.

Machiavellianism

Manipulation and exploitation of others, a cynical disregard for morality, and a focus on self-interest and deception.
People who score high on this trait are cynical, unprincipled, believe in interpersonal manipulation as the key for life success, and behave accordingly.
Machiavellianism is also significantly correlated with psychopathy.

Narcissism

Obsession with yourself, pride, egotism, and a lack of empathy.
Individuals who score high on narcissism display grandiosity, entitlement, dominance, and superiority. Narcissism has also been found to have a significant correlation with psychopathy.

Psychopathy

Enduring antisocial behavior, impulsivity, selfishness, and an inability to connect with other people鈥檚 feelings.
Considered the most malevolent of the dark triad, individuals who score high on psychopathy show low levels of empathy combined with high levels of impulsivity and thrill-seeking. The similarity between psychopathy and antisocial personality disorder have been noted by some researchers.
You can take the test for yourself >>here<<
(and for a bit of fun, this quiz rates how 'evil' you are)

Do you think you have a lot of any of these traits?

I got Machiavellianism. It seems scarily accurate and super slytherin.
Yea see everything was quite low except Machiavellianism, and that's only because I know how to decieve and that it can be done, not because it's something I do.
I'm shockingly saintly. My highest was narcissism but even that didn't reach 50%
i am shockly saintly lol
I think, I have this all some time... Who I am?
