The more you agree with these statements, the higher your level of Kantianism:

  • Honesty is far more important than charm
  • I would be true to myself, and genuine, even if it damages my reputation

The more you agree with these statements, the higher your level of humanism:

  • I am more likely than not to admire others
  • I tend to treat everyone as if they have a valuable contribution to make

The more you agree with these statements, the higher your level of faith in humanity:

  • I tend to think the best of people
  • On the whole, people are good

The more you agree with these statements, the higher your level of Machiavellianism:

  • I ensure my plan benefits me, not other people
  • You should wait for the right time to get back at others

The more you agree with these statements, the higher your level of psychopathy:

  • Payback needs to be quick and nasty
  • I will say anything to get what I want

Note: The psychological evidence is clear that the average person is moderately nice or moderately pleasant. However, people who score highly on the light triad could potentially be targets for those who score highly on the dark triad, because they are easier to abuse, according to Ryne Sherman, chief science officer of personality testers Hogan Assessments.
