Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review


The current chapter provides a brief review highlighting the problems identified in the literature surrounding existing measures of psychopathy and related negative personality traits within high-functioning business populations. The chapter will then describe a programme of research that has tested the psychometric properties of a new measure (the CPI-R) that captures dark triad personality traits via self-report and third-party ratings, and whose items are framed to capture behaviours, attitudes and decisions within a work context.
