Abstract

The Dark Triad (DT; Paulhus & Williams, 2002) of personality consists of three inter-related traits: narcissism (grandiosity, entitlement, and self-importance), Machiavellianism (manipulative and strategic) and psychopathy (empathy deficits, impulsivity), and has received enormous attention in the literature (Dinić & Jevremov, 2019). The recently proposed Light Triad (LT; Kaufman, Yaden, Hyde, & Tsukayama, 2019) of personality comprises three prosocial and growth-oriented traits of Faith in Humanity (believing in the fundamental goodness of humans), Humanism (valuing the dignity and worth of each individual), and Kantianism (treating people as ends unto themselves). The creators recommended that researchers explore and demonstrate different behavioural outcomes for both the DT and LT. In the current study, we explore the DT, LT, and online behaviour.
