  • How dark are you?

    Do you have a ruthless streak? Psychologists believe the “dark triad” of personality – Machiavellianism, narcissism and psychopathy – might help you succeed in life. To measure your own dark side, choose how much you agree or disagree with the simple statements below – and we’ll tell you how dastardly you actually are.

    Meh. Won the Machiavellian award, but that was about it.
    Credo quia absurdum.


    Quantum mechanics describes nature as absurd from the point of view of common sense. And yet it fully agrees with experiment. So I hope you can accept nature as She is - absurd! - Richard Feynman

    I am "Moderately nefarious." My Machiavellianism is pretty high but I'm not particularly narcissistic or psychopathic.

          Me too, when you have to be like that to survive the office politics.

            It says I'm perfectly normal...

            Moderately nefarious

            Like Don Draper, you are moderately nefarious. You walk on the dark side of humanity, but your ruthless streak may just help you get ahead.


            The long toll of the brave
            Is not lost in darkness
            Over the fruitful earth
            And athwart the seas
            Hath passed the light of noble deeds
            Unquenchable forever.

                  I'm in the same boat... A little above average Machiavellian, average narcissism (I must have answered something wrong) and below average psychopathy.

                      Seeing who others are that are moderately nefarious I don't know if I'm in good company or bad...maybe all are just a bit mad.

                            Of course one of the questions was along the lines of,

                            "Do you regularly lie because you figure others do not need to know the truth."


                            That's really the only significant question is it not
