    How Dark is your personality? Machiavellianism, narcissism and psychopathy...

    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.

    Take the test! haha

    It’s a matter of perspective.

    My victories are due to excellence. Yours are due to Machiavellian gamesmanship.

    I have a positive self-image. You’re a narcissist.

    I’m a pragmatist. You’re a psychopath.

    As Sartre said, “Hell is other people.”

    I've always loved that Sartre quote.

    Light has no meaning without darkness.

    I go with the old parable of the two wolves, one evil and one good. They are both within us and always fighting. The one that wins is the one you feed.

    But either way you’re wolf food.

    The only proper response is "I'll drink to that!"
