Abstract:

The study demonstrated that the non-Machiavellian layman, given a detailed description of the high Mach, can consistently produce a valid representation of highly manipulative interpersonal behavior under instructions to respond to the Mach V “as a Machiavellian would”. Simulation is thus shown to be a viable alternative to the median-split and extensive-testing methods for obtaining subjects for investigations of Machiavellianism, for reasons of veridicality and economy, respectively.
