Abstract:

The few studies which have tested Christie's (1970) contention that “there should be little or no relationship between Machiavellian orientations and measures of psychopathology” (p.42) have been characterized by contradictory findings and procedural flaws. In the present investigation, High Machs and Non-Machs (as determined by the Mach V) did not differ significantly in their scores on Neuroticism and Psychoticism (Eysenck Personality Inventory), Depression (IPAT Depression Scale) Occupational, Health, Home, Social and Emotional Adjustment (Bell Adjustment Inventory), or any of the substantive scales of the MMPI, thereby providing support for the hypothesis that the Machiavellian is a psychologically stable individual.
