Sažetak
For the past decade, the interest in so-called “dark personalities” is expanding. The Dark Triad (i.e. Machiavellianism, narcissism and psychopathy) framework represents correlated subclinical personality traits that capture these socially aversive personality traits. Although the number of papers on Dark Triad is large, only a few studies examined its relation to life satisfaction. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the relation of Dark Triad personality traits and life satisfaction, as well as gender differences on these traits. Participants were 642 students from various faculties of University of Zagreb (383 female and 259 male) with the mean age of 21.73 years (SD = 1.94). Data was collected using Satisfaction With Life Scale (SWLS, Diener et al., 1985) and Short Dark Triad scale (SD3-28 ; Paulhus & Johnes, 2011) within a larger study in 2012. After recoding SWLS results into a categorical variable (low – medium – high), we ran MANOVA with gender and SWLS as independent, and scores on Dark Triad traits as dependent variables. Results indicated that Machiavellianism and psychopathy are, as expected, more pronounced in males, and that students with high life satisfaction are lower on Machiavellianism and psychopathy than those with medium and low life satisfaction. However, statistically significant interaction of gender and SWLS indicated that females with high life satisfaction have higher scores on narcissism, while males with higher scores on narcissism have lower life satisfaction. These results confirm existence of gender differences in dark personality traits, and show interesting patterns of relation of Dark Triad personality traits and life satisfaction.
