The dark personality traits have expanded as a new and integrated model of combining existing personality theories and in the last decade, it has attracted a lot of attention in the field of personality pathology models. The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of pathological personality dimensions in predicting dark tetrad personality traits. For this purpose, 400 people (226 women and 174 men) were selected from the students of Tabriz universities by convenience sampling and were evaluated in terms of dark tetrad personality traits and the pathological personality dimensions. The results of multiple regression analysis showed that the five dimensions of pathological personality including negative affectivity, detachment, antagonism, disinhibition and psychoticism are related to the Machiavellianism, narcissism, psychopathy, Sadism. The results showed that Machiavellianism predicted by antagonism; psychopathy predicted by antagonism and detachment; narcissism predicted by antagonism, detachment and negative affectivity; Sadism predicted by antagonism. It is noteworthy that antagonism as one of the pathological personality dimensions predicted all four dark personality traits. It can be concluded that the dark personality traits can be rooted in maladaptive personality dimensions and aspects.
