Light/Dark Triad Test

Similar to the difficulty personality test, here is one that’s related to the forum theme that supposedly, but not truly measures your lightness and darkness of your personality. Dark being “evil” and light being “good”. Apparently though, if you’re truly honest and pick the most relatable option, this is reliable, as it was made by professionals or are certified in personality. So, take it, show your results if you please, and maybe if you want, explain your results.

Traits explained

"Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. People who score high on empathy are sensitive to the feelings of others and tend to resonate strongly with other people’s emotional states. Studies have shown that empathy is positively related to prosocial behaviors. That is, people who resonate with the feelings of others are also more likely to offer a helping hand, whether practically, therapeutically, or emotionally.

Compassion is the tendency to experience sympathy, pity, and concern for those who are suffering. Compassionate individuals readily notice when others are troubled and react with the kindness and consideration that is appropriate for reducing their suffering. Moreover, compassionate individuals understand that suffering is a universal component of the human experience and exhibit a nonjudgmental understanding of those who are struggling.

Altruism is the propensity to show disinterested and selfless concern for the well-being of others. Altruistic individuals tend to experience feelings of warmth after doing something good for others and are often strongly motivated to do good without expecting anything in return. As such, they are often seen as generous, helpful, and kind.

Narcissism is an egotistical interest in, or admiration of, one’s self. Narcissists tend to be excessively preoccupied with themselves and motivated by getting admiration from others and maintaining a grandiose self-image. Because narcissists are so preoccupied with getting others to buy into their self-image, they may initially seem charming, but most narcissists have trouble developing real relationships on account of their difficulty with empathy and their lack of interest in others.

Machiavellianism is characterized by a duplicitous interpersonal style, a cynical disregard for morality, and a focus on self-interest and personal gain. People who score high on Machiavellianism tend to be unemotional and take an instrumental view of others. They are therefore able to detach themselves from conventional morality and manipulate others. Highly Machiavellian individuals can be very patient with their deceptions due to their calculating nature.

Psychopathy is identified by the tell-tale sign of shallow emotional responses. The underdeveloped affect of psychopaths endows them with high stress tolerance, low empathy, and little guilt, which prompt them to seek out extremely stimulating activities (sex, violence, drugs, or financial risk), resulting in impulsivity and a disposition toward interpersonal conflict. Personality traits associated with psychopathy include a lack of empathy or remorse, antisocial behavior, and volatility."

I’m not very surprised with the results except for empathy, I thought that one would be lower.
