Where do you fall on the Dark Triad traits?

There has been an exponential increase of interest in the dark side of human nature in the last decade. To better understand this dark side, scientists have developed the Dark Core and Dark Triad tests.

The Dirty Dozen test is a scientifically-validated and shortened version of the Dark Triad test. Like the Dark Triad test, the Dirty Dozen measures the socially undesirable traits of Narcissism, Machiavellianism, and Psychopathy. The Dark Triad test is often used by police and the courts, in psychiatric wards and evaluations, and even in big corporations.

Average or below but Machiavellianism is 56% and above average.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 101/02/2021

The only question I didn't answer with totally disagree was the one about cynicism. I don't think that is a dark trait. It's good to be a little cynical about things.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 201/02/2021

29.83%

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 301/02/2021

45 percent higher than the population average

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 401/02/2021

0.13% lower than the average. High on Machiavellian traits, lower on the others.

I’m just very honest.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 501/02/2021

Of course a narcissist would answer a strong NO to everything because they think they're perfect. Dumb test. Maybe that opinion makes me a sociopath.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 601/02/2021

Question 14: "Are you THAT bitch?"

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 701/02/2021

R7 I’m still that bitch, bitch.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 801/02/2021

I scored way higher than average, but I knew I would. I believe I am a narcissist, and I know this because I also have an empty sense of self, and very low self esteem. I believe that I am special and deserve more than most people, but that I am not good enough, and a terrible person. Sometimes I fear what would happen if I were to gain self esteem, or became fixated on a goal that I actually cared about.

I am very aware of these traits, so I try to do good things. I volunteer at an animal shelter, but even then I have wrangled my way into becoming the photographer/videographer rather than doing any of the dirty work.

It's fucking horrible by the way. I never go out of my way to fuck others over, but after the fact I realise I've done something incredibly thoughtless. Someone called me on it recently (I stole some of her clients) and after a rage-filled couple of weeks I realised she was actually right. That is what I'd done. In my mind she'd proved herself incompetent, so I just picked them off.

I don't feel bad about doing it, just embarrassed at being caught out.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 901/02/2021

I find your honesty and self-awareness sexy.

That's because you're evil with no moral foundation.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 1101/02/2021

1.88 darker than average

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 1201/02/2021

I scored kind of high for Machiavellianism (57%), which is hilarious because my dad used to share lessons from The Prince when we were kids. I then read the book in its entirety during college, and consider ot a useful guide for navigating the workplace (or at least understanding others' behavior).

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 1301/02/2021

r11 So, I should feel bad? The woman was incompetent and couldn't so what the clients wanted. At the time I felt like I was doing them a favour, I was genuinely quite bitter at the woman as she was meant to be teaching me certain skills (she didn't) so I taught myself and then punished her.

I do have insight into my behaviour, but I don't know how I can change.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 1401/02/2021

About 9% darker than average. Highest above average was psycholopathy but in reading the explanation of that trait, it didn't seem to fit my answers unless the cynicism question falls under that one.

R2 lied on a dark triad quiz that no one else can see. Wonder what that says about him?

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 1501/02/2021

Everybody lies and manipulates others. Everyone wants to be admired. These are bullshit questions.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 1601/02/2021

*psychopathy, although psycholopathy should be a new category for something!

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 1701/02/2021

R14 Again, I find your honesty and self-awareness sexy.

Let me help heal you.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 1801/02/2021

R16, that's why the answers were a range. Although twelve questions is way too short. I'm sure there's a real one with more questions out there if you want to seek it out.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 1901/02/2021

[quote]Everybody lies and manipulates others. Everyone wants to be admired. These are bullshit questions.

That's a tell-tale sign of having the dark traits, believing that everyone else is like that too.

We're not.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 2001/02/2021

R18, your dating life must be a long-running disaster filled with disappointment and pain.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 2101/02/2021

R21 😂🤣😂🤣😂

::sigh:: I needed that.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 2201/02/2021

^R18

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 2301/02/2021

But if you actually ARE the most interesting person in the room?

Are you a POC?

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 2501/02/2021

35.83% darker than the average here. That’s probably about par with the rest of you bitches.

Interesting. Thanks OP

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 2601/02/2021

8% darker than average.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 2701/02/2021

I'm a little darker than average and think that's about right.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 2801/02/2021

6.17% lighter than average

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 2901/02/2021

Oh my... I'm 39.83 darker than average. And 81% Machiavellian (which is true). Oy vey.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 3001/02/2021

This one is bullshit. Where is the other one that was on here about a year ago. It had questions that could really slip by a real sociopath. It being ok to cut corners to get ahead and taking advantage of people. Wish I could remember.

This one is just click bait.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 3101/02/2021

Damn, I am obviously a psycho. 45% darker than average.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 3201/02/2021

im 2.83% darker than average. i scored highest on the Machiavellian part. I answered high for cynicism

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 3301/02/2021

10 percent darker--mostly narcissism, seems about right--some low self-esteem countered by some inner pep talks. It's not super functional, but it beats full-fledged depression. But I still live in reality v. full-fledged personality disorder types.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 3401/02/2021

Mary Fucking Poppins.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 3501/02/2021

It's a bunch of shit, it's based on the premise that people answer truthfully.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 3601/02/2021

I, too, got dinged for cynicism, but still placed 14% lighter than most.

But always remember: no matter how cynical you become, it's never enough to keep up.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 3701/02/2021

22% lighter. 13% narcissism; 0% Machivellianism; 19% psychopathy.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 3801/02/2021

This makes you 66.83% Darker than the average person.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 3901/03/2021

8.17% lighter than average, higher only in psychopathy, probably because I am so cycnical

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 4001/03/2021

R9, it must truly suck to be deeply narcissistic. It's like there's a void in you that will never be filled. I'm the opposite of a narcissist, an empath. I attract a lot of narcs, and they drain the ever living shit out of me. But I'm learning somewhat how to interact with them in a way that doesn't lead to complete fucking chaos and misery.

I believe narcs can become sentient/aware and there is potential for them to possibly not be complete dickheads. I know the psychiatric literature says its nearly impossible for narcissists to change, but I don't believe it.

I have empathy for narcissists because I know most of them had terrible and even unimaginably terrible childhoods, abject neglect and abuse leading to the development of narcissism. I also know how toxic and insidious the illness actually is.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 4106/09/2021

Okay, already stumped.

Question 1: [italic]“I tend to expect special favors from others.” [/italic]Well, often, kind of, yes. But I have a sunny personality, am good looking, and do special favors for others all the time. (I’m also white, a group that tends to be treated better.)

My experience is that people DO do favors for me.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 4206/09/2021

R41 does this apply to Meghan Markle?

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 4306/09/2021

This makes you 48.83% Darker than the average person.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 4406/09/2021

18.17% lighter

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 4506/09/2021

Well, I display no psychopathy. So I guess we’re all safe.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 4606/09/2021

Apparently I’m 20.83% darker than others and I find that hard to believe because most people are such assholes.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 4706/09/2021

I actually scored nearly average everywhere except for psychopathy. I’m 75% there. I don’t get it I would never hurt an animal and I love my family.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 4806/09/2021

^^ exactly what a PSYCHOPATH would say when FOUND OUT ! !

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 4906/09/2021

I honestly thought I was maybe autistic and undiagnosed because I’ve always had a difficult time relating to other people and I don’t like most of them. I feel I have good reason though because most of them are awful. I always thought psychopaths were violent which I’m not.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 5006/09/2021

I’m sure you’re perfectly fine, r47

If you’re honestly interested, though, this strikes me as a good, in depth video on the topic.

9% darker than average. I also don't view cynicism as a negative.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 5206/09/2021

88% - Narcissism

100% - Machiavellianism

63% - Psychopathy

84% - Average

[quote]This makes you 50.83% Darker than the average person.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 5306/09/2021

33% darker than the basics

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 5406/09/2021

39.8% darker. Yikes! I need Jesus or something.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 5506/09/2021

Like r47 I score surprisingly high on psychopathy, but I know for sure I’m on the autism spectrum. I think the shallow emotional responses and tactlessness stem from that. The description of psychopaths “[seeking] out extremely stimulating activities (sex, violence, drugs, or financial risk), resulting in impulsivity and a disposition towards interpersonal conflict” is very much NOT me - in the extreme. I’ve often wondered how much overlap there is between autism and psychopathy.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 5606/09/2021

Oh fuck, now that he is being (rightfully) dragged, she will likely come to his help. Gross.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 5706/09/2021

I’m exactly average. I’m a little more narcissistic and a little less Machiavellian. It evened out.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 5806/09/2021

Low on Machiavellianism and narcissism but 50% on psychopathy.

Probably due to the fact that I am mostly dead inside.

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 5906/09/2021

[quote]R57 Oh fuck, now that he is being (rightfully) dragged, she will likely come to his help. Gross.

Who are you ripping to shreds here?

"Agent Starling, do you think you can dissect me with this blunt little tool?"

by 1.84 above average (gulp)reply 6206/10/2021

I'm 8.17% better than all of you. I also scored slighty above average for psychopathy for SOME reason.
