In a sample of 425 target-coworker dyads, it is found that the traditional measures of MACH show a high degree of similarity with psychopathy, while the FFMI is discriminant from psychopathy and shows divergence from traditional measures from MACH with reference to coworker ratings of social competencies, vocational environments, and occupational success.
Five Factor Machiavellianism: Validation of a New Measure
The FFMI displayed positive relations with a broad range of criteria for vocational and work-related success and was clearly distinct from psychopathy, which converged greatly with the correlation profiles for the FFMI-antagonism dimension.
The Nexus of the Dark Triad Personality Traits With Cyberbullying, Empathy, and Emotional Intelligence: A Structural-Equation Modeling Approach
Improvements regarding the measurement of dark personality traits are indicated and future research could fruitfully explore cyberbullies’ profiles regarding primary and secondary psychopathy, sex differences in narcissism, and buffering effects of emotional intelligence.

Machiavellianism: An alexithymic perspective

Machiavellianism: Dimensionality of the Mach IV and its Relation to Self-Monitoring in a Spanish Sample
The results of confirmatory factor analyses showed a four-factor structure to be the most adequate model for the Mach IV, with the following factors: Positive Interpersonal Tactics, Negative Tactics, Positive View of Human Nature, and Cynical View of human Nature.
The Malevolent Side of Human Nature
The findings show that dark triad traits are substantially intercorrelated, somewhat more prevalent among men than women, predominantly related to the Big Five personality factor of agreeableness and the HEXACO factor of honesty-humility, and generally associated with various types of negative psychosocial outcomes.

Differences Among Dark Triad Components: A Meta-Analytic Investigation
