Sadism, psychopathy, or narcissism. These negative human traits have a common core: Den D factor ("dark factor") of personality. This value shows how much a person is literally ready to walk over corpses.

"I avoid humiliating others": do you agree?

The D-factor is a value that is calculated on the basis of a questionnaire and is somewhere between one and five. In the case of a serial killer, the D-factor should tend towards five. For an average good / bad person, it is around 2.5.

"I would like to let some people suffer, even if I went to hell with them for it": Does that apply to you?

This D-factor was defined by three researchers from Germany and Denmark. This after interviewing over two thousand people from Germany. The main thing is to ask about characteristics such as egoism, hatefulness or self-centeredness. And to see if people justify their behavior.
