Psychopaths can’t manipulate as easily online: UBCO study

Psychopaths and narcissists are skilled at manipulating people in face-to-face situations, but they don’t do so well online, according to a UBC Okanagan study featured in the Huffington Post.

“The results of this study are pretty clear,” said lead researcher and psychology professor Michael Woodworth. “Once you remove non-verbal cues such as body language from the question, the ability to smoke out narcissists and psychopaths becomes easier.”
