Abstract:

Compared to control group data obtained under standard instructions, subjects asked to fake their replies to the Howarth Personality Questionnaire in the way they felt a Machiavellian (i.e., socially manipulative) individual would honestly respond scored significantly higher on Ascendance-Dominance, Trust vs Suspicion and Impulsiveness, and significantly lower on Superego, Inferiority and Cooperativeness-Considerateness. Preliminary analysis suggests that these traits are congruent with the personality characteristics of authentic high Machs.
