The Triarchic Model posits that psychopathic personality traits are captured by three dimensions-boldness, meanness, and disinhibition. Recent findings indicate considerable overlap between the Triarchic constructs and the six-factor HEXACO (honesty-humility, emotionality, extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, and openness to experience) model of normal personality traits (Ruchensky & Donnellan, 2017). The current study describes the development and validation of Triarchic proxy scales drawn from the HEXACO-100 item pool (Lee & Ashton, 2016) using two large undergraduate samples (Ns = 545, 398) and a community sample from MTurk (N = 391). The HEXACO-Triarchic scales were strongly correlated with other Triarchic measures and showed theoretically predicted relations with criterion variables. The HEXACO-Triarchic scales also appear to have greater discrimination between the three Triarchic dimensions compared with alternative measures.
