Хороший и простой, плохой и сложный: как воспринимается образ другого при разных уровнях Темной триады.
The Dark triad as a constellation of three sub-clinical traits of Machiavellism, Narcissism, and Psychopathy attracts researcher’s attention in the recent decades. The Dark triad is associated with exploitive and manipulate behavior, and limited empathy. Most studies showed connections of the Dark Triad traits with other personality and behavioral characteristics. However, studies about the perception of persons with "dark" personality are rare. The first purpose of this study is to reveal how people with the extreme manifestations of the Dark Triad traits perceive and evaluate Positive and Negative other people. The second is to analyze the association of the respondent’s traits with the evaluation and attitude to the Positive and Negative persons. The sample consists of 460 undergraduate students. Positive and Negative images of the other (video clip) were presented to the respondents. Then each image was evaluated by the (non)relevant characteristics of the Dark Triad and the cognitive, behavioral, and emotional components of the attitude. Also, respondents were diagnosed with Machiavellianism, Narcissism, and Psychopathy. The polarization of assessments and attitudes toward Positive and Negative images of the others were discovered. The role of the negative traits of the respondents was manifested. Higher values of the Dark Triad traits make the Negative image more complex and difficult to evaluate in opposition "good-bad" The cognitive component of attitude toward Positive and Negative image become closer for respondents with high Dark triad traits.
