What are your scores for the Dark Triad?

http://helloquizzy.okcupid.com/tests/the-dark-triad-test-1

I get 99% for Machiavellianism, 49% for narcissism and 81% for psychopathy, and I'd have expected narcissism to be higher whilst my Machiavellianism score seems a little high even for me.

(The term psychopath here means Antisocial Personality Disorder traits, it differs from other concepts of psychopathy and actually corresponds to Hare's factor 2.)

If you have a high score on any of the triad, then you have low agreeableness but a callous interpersonal style.

You scored 49Machiavellianism, 49 Narcissism, 43 Psychopathy

Nobody scores 99% for Machiavellianism, nobody. For some reason I get the feeling that you go to great lengths to appear as a sociopath in order to appear more interesting.

Accept the truth. Crap internet surveys never lie, personality is best represented by numerically ranked non-clinical terms, without objective definitions.

Lol, these numbers don't suggest the truth, since the questions are often wrongly prepared, like pairing up crime and deception with manipulation, which makes me back off from most of those arguments.
Also, I don't really get why manipulation needs to be tagged along with personal profit against others. I simply deceive others to kill some time and have fun with them, not to get anything other than that. In my eyes, a true manipulator is one who never tells you a lie, but one who will give you only the piece of truth he wants you to have.

43Machiavellianism, 55 Narcissism, 20 Psychopathy!

The narcissism aliases optimism. The questions focused on "do you think you can get ahead if you try" without asking "do you think everyone can try". While I hold myself to a high standard and level of respect, I believe that everyone should shoot for that.

The questions about lying were frustrating though. Whether lying is right or wrong is an morally ambiguous area. If you were helping someone in a car crash who was injured and asking about their companion who died on the scene, you don't want to shock them when they are already badly traumatized. If an old man with Alzheimer's goes on a rage when you tell him his wife died years ago, you'd want to tell him instead that she's out on errands.

Lying for the thrill of it, lying because of necessity, and lying to shield someone from harm are very very different motives.


Narcissism 2 31.9
Machiavellianism 1.5 16.6
Psychopathy 0.8 10.8

Slightly better, but still ignoring the moral messiness of lying.
