Welcome to the Dark Side
  • The Treasury, Catherine Street, Royal Parade, Plymouth PL1 2AD

Save event

The field of personality psychology is concerned with systematic variation between individuals, what causes those differences and how they relate to real-world outcomes. 

Over recent years there has been increasing research interest in the so called “dark” personality traits – those which are claimed to reflect the less prosocial side of human nature. 

This talk will present an overview of dark personality traits, their costs and benefits and some of the everyday behaviours and outcomes which have been associated with them.

About the speaker

Dr Alison Bacon is a lecturer in psychology at Plymouth University. Her research interests primarily concern individual differences in personality, imagery and creativity, risk-taking and antisocial behaviour. She is currently involved in research projects on the relationship between personality and delinquent behaviour in adolescence, including the role of supposedly prosocial traits such as Emotional intelligence.

This free talk is organised by the South West branch of the British Psychological Society and is open to all. No booking required - just turn up on the night.
