dc.description.abstract This research study seeks to gain a better understanding of the effects of the dark triad (narcissism, Machiavellianism, psychopathy) on advice taking and decision making. This research will involve whether or not the dark triad traits may result in working professionals being more or less likely to accept advice when making a decision. Past research has shown that outcomes are generally more favorable when the person who is making the decision takes the advice of another person into consideration. Despite this fact, I propose that people with higher dark personality traits will not accept advice when making a decision. This study will recruit working professionals, with the intention of learning more about how the dark triad may impact decision making in the work place. M.A.
