Possession of psychopathic, narcissistic and Machiavellian traits is related to attraction to organisations and job roles that provide opportunities for rewards, autonomy and stimulation. Such individuals are likely to appear as good candidates and therefore be selected. Different perspectives on performance reveal different relationships todysfunctional traits. Some aspects of performance (e.g. sales) appear to be aided by dysfunctional traits whilst others are hampered (e.g. contextual performance). Organisational structure also appears to impact upon the success of those with dysfunctional traits. These traits appear to be associated with a rise to leadership positions, but inbuilt character weaknesses are likely to become salient and may lead to career derailment.
