From the article: Many factors can contribute to a person’s eating habits, including personality traits. The Dark Triad personality traits of narcissism, psychopathy, and Machiavellianism have been linked to many negative outcomes, but their relationship to disordered eating has been underexplored. A study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health looks at how these traits related to uncontrolled, restrained, and emotional eating.

Eating disorders have been linked to personality traits before, such as high neuroticism, perfectionism, lower self-esteem, and introversion. Despite this, research focusing on the eating patterns of people high in Dark Triad personality traits has been minimal. Dark Triad personality traits have been linked to many negative behaviors and outcomes for people, including impulsivity, manipulation, and selfishness.

Previous research has explored meat eating habits of Dark Triad personality traits using German samples, and this research aims to delve deeper into how these personality traits relate to disordered eating and eating disorders.

That these individuals do not get their sustenance from the suffering of others but actually food.
