A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
I am most known for my work on the Dark Triad traits (e.g., psychopathy, narcissism, & Machiavellianism). I have examined a wide array of variables linked to these traits including creativity, mating, and values. Currently I am compiling a book on measures of the dark side of personality. I have also maintained an interest in mating strategies and mate preferences relying on big data, cross-national data, and experimental studies.
There are three main research goals: to examine the (1) role of individual-level factors in adopting beliefs in just war ; (2) universality (vs. cultural specificity) of beliefs related to just war; and (3) macro-level factors moderating the concept of just war across national and religious backgrounds. To examine the concept of just war we use three-dimensional model of beliefs in just war: (1) just war – restricted view on reasons and means of war, as self-defensive and targeted only toward military goals; (2) utilitarian war – unrestricted view on war reasons, accepting war as a way of intergroup conflicts resolutions; (3) dirty war – unrestricted view on war means, accepting any means useful in defeating the enemy.
