Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka sambanden mellan Dark Triad (de mörka

personlighetsdragen Machiavellism, narcissism och psykopati), Sociosexuell orientering

(beteende, attityd och lust till att medverka i tillfälliga sexuella relationer) samt Religiositet.

En korrelationsanalys utfördes för att undersöka sambanden mellan variablerna och en

modererande multipel regressionsanalys (MMR) utfördes för att undersöka om religiositet

modererade effekten av Dark Triad på sociosexuell orientering. Deltagarna bestod av

amerikaner (N =309) som svarade på en webbenkät via Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk)

vilken innehöll Dark Triad Dirty Dozen (DTDD) och the Revised Sociosexual Orientation

Inventory (SOI-R), dessutom angav de religionstillhörighet/ingen religionstillhörighet.

Dark Triad hade ett positivt samband med sociosexuell orientering, men inget samband

med religiositet. Sociosexuell orientering hade ett negativt samband med religiositet.

Religiositet modererade inte effekten av Dark Triad på sociosexuell orientering. Resultaten

bekräftar delvis tidigare forskning. Trots att religiositet inte modererade effekten av Dark

Triad på sociosexuell orientering, borde detta förhållande undersökas vidare eftersom ingen

tidigare forskning gjorts på området.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationships between the Dark Triad (the

dark personality traits Machiavellianism, narcissism and psychopathy), Sociosexual

orientation (behavior, attitude and desire to participate in uncommited sex) and Religiosity.

A correlation analysis was used to investigate the association between variables and a

moderating multiple regressionanalysis (MMR) was used to investigate if Religiosity

moderated the effect of the Dark Triad on Sociosexual orientation. The participants

consisted of US-residents (N = 309) who responded to an online survey through Amazon

Mechanical Turk (MTurk) comprising The Dark Triad Dirty Dozen (DTDD) and the

Revised Sociosexual Orientation Inventory (SOI-R). In addition participants also stated

religious affiliation / no religious affiliation. Dark Triad had a positive relationship with

sociosexual orientation, but no relationship with religiosity. Sociosexual orientation had a

negative relationship with religiosity. Religiosity did not moderate the effect of Dark Triad

on sociosexual orientation. The results partially confirm previous research. Although

religiosity failed to moderate the effect of Dark Triad on sociosexual orientation, this

relation should be investigated further since no previous research has been done in this field

of research.
