Dr Gayle Brewer - Dark Triad Traits, Attractiveness, and Sexual Behaviour
Time & Location
About the Event
Join Edinburgh Skeptics online for the third of our four 2021 Edinburgh Science Festival events. Dr Gayle Brewer - Dark Triad Traits, Attractiveness, and Sexual Behaviour Dark Triad traits (Machiavellianism, psychopathy, and narcissism) are related but distinct traits characterised by a lack of empathy, exploitation, and manipulation. Research suggests that Dark Triad traits influence sexual and romantic relationships, for example, those high on Dark Triad traits prefer short-term relationships and avoid long-term commitment. This presentation will outline the relationship between Dark Triad traits, physical attractiveness, and sexual behaviour. In particular, negative aspects of romantic and sexual relationships, such as infidelity, conflict, and control, will be considered. Dr Gayle Brewer is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Liverpool. Her research focuses on individual differences and sexual behaviour, with a particular emphasis on sexual conflict, harassment, and coercion. She has published over 80 journal articles and a range of books and book chapters.
