The current study compared the relationships between the dark triad traits and various work outcomes across a Chinese (N = 239) and a United States (N = 240) employee sample. The results of multigroup structural equation modeling analyses generally revealed a “dark” pattern across the two countries for psychopathy. Machiavellianism was generally “brighter” in China compared to the United States. Narcissism seemed to display a somewhat “brighter” pattern in the United States compared to China, as narcissism was more positively related to voice behavior and work engagement, and more negatively related to exhaustion and boredom at work in the United States than in China.
