The term “Dark Triad” refers to a trio of negative personality traits—narcissism, Machiavellianism, and psychopathy—which share some common malevolent features. Narcissism is characterized by a grandiose sense of self-importance, a lack of empathy for others, and a constant need for admiration. Machiavellianism involves manipulating and exploiting others for personal gain and focusing on deception. Psychopathy features a lack of empathy and remorse, impulsivity, and a tendency toward antisocial behavior.

On the other hand, ghosting refers to the sudden and unexpected cessation of communication with someone, often in the context of a personal relationship. It commonly occurs in the realm of dating, where one person abruptly stops responding to messages, calls, or other forms of communication without providing any explanation or closure. This behavior can be hurtful and confusing for the person being ghosted, as they are left with a sense of being dismissed.

Peter Jonason has implemented extensive research on the people with Dark Triad traits and their mating behaviors. In this video, he refers to his research, specifically looking at their ghosting behaviors. However, he goes beyond the specific study to share data that can help us understand what kind of relationships the Dark Triad person is seeking and how this applies to today’s dating scene.
