Background

Having been initially interested in Narcissism, for my Undergraduate and Master’s dissertations I explored the relationship between Narcissism and sex, and later, Narcissism’s potentially adaptive benefits. Both led me to expand my work to the Dark Triad, the collective term for the three related, yet distinct, sub-clinical traits of Narcissism, Machiavellianism and Psychopathy.

My present research focuses on:

The Dark Triad’s attractiveness

The Dark Triad’s manifestation in women
