01) Subtle Signs of the Dark Triad – Dark Personality Examples

“This video answers the question: Can I provide some of the subtle signs we see associated with the dark triad? Sometimes these are called the dark triad traits or referred to as the dark personality. The Dark Triad includes includes psychopathy, narcissism, and Machiavellianism.
When we think of the dark triad, we think of narcissism as the ‘lightest trait’ and psychopathy as the ‘darkest trait.’ These different traits have characteristics in common like empathy deficits, selfishness, a short-term mating style, as well as being competitive, antisocial, hedonistic, and having antagonism. We can think of antagonism as a low score on the agreeableness trait of the five-factor model.

Narcissism in the dark triad is really grandiose narcissism. We see characteristics like arrogance, being socially dominant, being self-centered, a sense of entitlement, and a tendency to manipulate others (we see this characteristic with all three of the dark triad traits). Psychopathy characteristics include callousness; a lack of empathy, remorse, or guilt; violating society’s norms; being irresponsible; being impulsive; having shallow effect; and superficial charm. The trait of Machiavellianism includes antisocial behaviors, but they’re usually conceptualized as white-collar crime. We also see cynicism, having good impulse control (so this would differentiate Machiavellianism from psychopathy), callousness and being goal-oriented (usually we conceptualize the goal as being negative).”

“Trump’s dream team is a circus of clowns.

Chief Justice John Roberts, who is presiding over the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, scolded both the Democratic House managers and the President’s defense team early Wednesday morning after a contentious exchange on the Senate floor.

The extraordinary moment capped an acrimonious opening to Trump’s impeachment trial, and placed Roberts, who otherwise largely handled procedural tasks on day 1, in the position of reminding advocates for both sides to maintain decorum during a highly partisan affair.

01) Justice Democrats: “…defeat Donald Trump, the billionaire class”

“Hillary Clinton made clear during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter on Monday that her grudge against Bernie Sanders is still alive. But instead of firing up the Bernie Bros, her actions prompted progressives to call for unity. Political Action Committee Justice Democrats pressed for the former Democratic candidate to support the eventual nominee, regardless of who it is, to defeat the number one opponent: President Trump. The organization’s Executive Director Alexandra Rojas spoke with host Jamal Simmons about the group’s effort. Also on today’s newscast, the second day of President Trump’s impeachment trial is well underway, and we’ve got an update from the 50th World Economic Forum taking place in Davos, Switzerland.”
