    Default MACH-IV

    Here's an interactive test which determines your personal level of Machiavellianism. It has only 20 items and is quickly done.

    I got 73 but expected a much lower score.

    Your score was 62 of 100.

    This puts you in the category of the high Machs, people who do not belive (sic) in the goodness of the world and that because that it must be manipulated (sic), people who Machiavelli would approve of.

    Your score was 46 of 100.

    This puts you in the category of the low Machs, people who will hold out for the goodness of the world and avoid manipulation. Not the people Machiavelli would approve of.

    My score was 66, and I was consciously being kind and generous to my fellow-man.

    I have to assume that there are some approximations occurring in the scoring process, because I usually get 66.6.

    59. On the low side apparently. Must try harder.

    A graph of how others who have taken this have scores is below. These scores should not be taken as population norms though, the people who seek out tests of machivellianism on the internet are most likely not representative.

    59. Questions were very stupid.
