Abstract

The current article sets out to review industrial-organizational psychology literature relevant to dark side of personality. We address several models used to describe sub-clinical characteristics, their relationships to the most common bright side taxonomies (i.e., the Big Five model and the HEXACO model), conceptual and methodological challenges in the study of dark traits and research relevant to understanding the importance of the dark side of personality in the workplace. We present arguments for assessing dark side characteristics at work and to continue research on the topic.
